Many applications in teleoperation and virtual reality call for the implementation of e ective means of displaying to the human operator information on the softness and other mechanical properties of objects being touched. The ability of humans to detect softness of di erent objects by tactual exploration is intimately related to both kinesthetic and cutaneous perception, and haptic displays should be designed so as to address such multimodal perceptual channel. Unfortunately, accurate… CONTINUE READING
