Rendering Softness: Integration of Kinesthetic and Cutaneous Information in a Haptic Device
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Haptics
By Enzo Pasquale Scilingo, Matteo Bianchi, Giorgio Grioli, Antonio Bicchi
Issue Date:April 2010
pp. 109-118
While it is known that softness discrimination relies on both kinesthetic and cutaneous information, relatively little work has been done on the realization of haptic devices replicating the two cues in an integrated and effective way. In this paper, we fi...
 
Integrating Two Haptic devices for Performance Enhancement
Found in: World Haptics Conference
By Enzo Pasquale Scilingo, Nicola Sgambelluri, Giovanni Tonietti, Antonio Bicchi
Issue Date:March 2007
pp. 139-144
This paper deals with a new configuration for a haptic system, which is able to simultaneously replicate independent force/displacement and force/area behaviors of a given material. Being force/area information a relevant additional haptic cue for improvin...
 
Free Hand Haptic Interfaces Based on Magnetorheological Fluids
Found in: Haptic Interfaces for Virtual Environment and Teleoperator Systems, International Symposium on
By Nicola Sgambelluri, Rocco Rizzo, Marco Raugi, E. Pasquale Scilingo, Antonio Bicchi
Issue Date:March 2006
pp. 56
This paper is concerned with exploring the possibility of using Magneto-Rheological Fluids (MRF) as haptic interface. MRF are special materials capable of changing their rheological behaviour with an external magnetic field. This property suggested us to u...
 
Perceptual Biases in Tactile Flow
Found in: World Haptics Conference
By Antonio Bicchi, Davide Dente, Enzo Pasquale Scilingo, Nicola Sgambelluri
Issue Date:March 2005
pp. 17-20
In this paper we report on results of a psychophysical experiment in which the optic illusion of Ouchi is reproduced in the tactile domain. In the vision field, when eyes scan over a texture grid, consisting in two rectangular checkerboard patterns oriente...
 
Haptic Displays Based on Magnetorheological Fluids: Design, Realization and Ppsychophysical Validation
Found in: Haptic Interfaces for Virtual Environment and Teleoperator Systems, International Symposium on
By Enzo Pasquale Scilingo, Nicola Sgambelluri, Danilo De Rossi, Antonio Bicchi
Issue Date:March 2003
pp. 10
In this paper we explore the possibility of using magnetorheological (MR) fluids in haptic interfaces, exploiting their property of changing the rheological behaviour by tuning an external magnetic field. In particular, we propose two different prototypes ...
 
Exploring Teleimpedance and Tactile Feedback for Intuitive Control of the Pisa/IIT SoftHand
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Haptics
By Arash Ajoudani,Sasha B. Godfrey,Matteo Bianchi,Manuel G. Catalano,Giorgio Grioli,Nikos Tsagarakis,Antonio Bicchi
Issue Date:April 2014
pp. 203-215
This paper proposes a teleimpedance controller with tactile feedback for more intuitive control of the Pisa/IIT SoftHand. With the aim to realize a robust, efficient and low-cost hand prosthesis design, the SoftHand is developed based on the motor control ...
