The AHI: an audio and haptic interface for contact interactions

  title={The AHI: an audio and haptic interface for contact interactions},
  author={Derek DiFilippo and Dinesh K. Pai},
We have implemented a computer interface that renders synchronized auditory and haptic stimuli with very low (0.5ms) latency. The audio and haptic interface (AHI) includes a Pantograph haptic device that reads position input from a user and renders force output based on this input. We synthesize audio by convolving the force profile generated by user interaction with the impulse response of the virtual surface. Auditory and haptic modes are tightly coupled because we produce both stimuli from… CONTINUE READING
