Tactile Vocabulary for Tactile Displays
Found in: World Haptics Conference
By Lynette A. Jones, Jacquelyn Kunkel, Edgar Torres
Issue Date:March 2007
pp. 574-575
Two experiments were conducted to identify a set of tactile patterns that could be recognized with high accuracy when presented using a tactile display on the back. These patterns could then serve as tactons to communicate simple commands and directions. T...

Issue Date:April 2006
pp. 146-149
A wearable Physiological Sensor System (PSS) has been built that can be used with a wireless control unit to monitor the physiological status of a mobile user. Two physiological variables, heart rate and respiratory rate, were selected for initial study. T...
 
Thermal Model for Hand-Object Interactions
Found in: Haptic Interfaces for Virtual Environment and Teleoperator Systems, International Symposium on
By Hsin-Ni Ho, Lynette A. Jones
Issue Date:March 2006
pp. 70
A thermal model is proposed that predicts the temperature responses of the skin and material surface during hand-object interactions as well as the heat flux exchanged when the fingerpad makes contact with an object. The surface features of the fingerpad w...
 
Vibrotactile Pattern Recognition on the Arm and Torso
Found in: World Haptics Conference
By Erin Piateski, Lynette Jones
Issue Date:March 2005
pp. 90-95
A tactile display for use in navigation has been designed and evaluated. In these experiments, the ability of subjects to identify patterns of vibrotactile stimulation was tested using tactile displays mounted on the arm and torso. The performance of two t...
 
Development of a Tactile Vest
