The advent of Virtual Reality (VR) technologies has begun a shift in communication between people and their interaction with 3D virtual environments. VR has great potential to provide high immersion to users, allowing designers to create vivid and impossible interactions. However, while software and technology play a crucial role in creating a...

This master’s thesis is an exploration of force feedback in offshore applications with the intention of teleoperating heavy machinery. Specifically, Allseas provided their field joint coating machine handling for offshore pipelay as the subject and scope of this study. The anti-sway use case is identified through literature research, user and...

People that are recovering from a stroke need frequent and high-intensity training to regain their upper-limb capacity. This will eventually result in better performances and higher quality of their daily life. Robotic devices are often used to assist stroke patients in rehabilitation. The minimally-supervised portable hand trainer, which is...

This project explores the potential of a material system based on SMAs that generates haptic feedback for Visually Impaired People (VIPs). Since VIPs rely more than others on tactile information, there is a need for more natural and unintrusive haptic devices as the commonly used electromechanical actuations are often perceived as intrusive and...

Tactile Internet opens many new possibilities as it solves one of the critical problems in the modern-day Internet, namely latency. Remote operations are possible that are deemed too dangerous with current technologies. Interacting directly with the remote environment without being physically present will be a life-changing experience. Before...

In laparoscopic surgery, quality of haptic feedback is reduced compared to conventional surgery, leading to unintentional tissue damage during grasping. From the perspective of haptics, poor mechanical design of laparoscopic instrument joints induces friction and a nonlinear actuation-tip force relation. In this study, a novel laparoscopic...

Tactile Internet (TI) allows kinesthetic interactions with a remote environment and haptic sensory feedback over a network, essentially adding a new sensory dimension to the internet. TI has a wide range of applications such as enabling remote work for professions that require human hands and tactile sensory input like car repairs or medical...

When we manipulate objects in our day-to-day life, we perceive information on the object via force feedback that we sense with our sensorimotor system. However, in virtual reality, we lack these forces, which makes it more challenging to interact with the digital world. Wearables, such as hand exoskeletons, can provide force feedback in VR....

Hand-worn haptic systems must be able to produce high-quality haptics while also being lightweight and energy-efficient. In order to meet market expectations, research is being done into novel drivetrains that may be implemented in hand worn devices. This is being pushed forward by the growing demand in the virtual reality sector, which is...

After decades of research and development, haptic feedback is increasingly appearing in consumer products. While the prevalence of haptic feedback is increasing, the integration rarely offers increased fidelity to previous generations. We argue this is because of the tremendous complexity of successful haptic design engineering, but...

There are approximately 285 million people worldwide living with a visual impairment and the rate of acquired blindness is expected to continue increasing. Assistive technology for them is progressively being developed in order to enable independent living. For the blind and visually impaired, the tactile sense is the primary source of...

Background Upper limb prostheses help people with an upper limb deficiency in performing activities of daily living. They can be divided into two categories; body-powered and externally powered prostheses. The advantage of body-powered prostheses is that they provide feedback to the user. The advantage of externally powered prostheses is the low...

The use of robots has attracted researchers to design numerous haptic training methods to support motor learning. However, investigations of new methods yielded inconclusive results regarding their effectiveness to enhance learning due to the diversity of tasks, haptic designs, participants skill level, and study protocols. In this review, we...

Improving the safety level of aviation is vital to prevent serious accidents. One key area where improvements can be made is the prevention of loss of control occurrences, by preventing the aircraft state to pass beyond the limits from which no recovery is possible. Such improvements can focus on improved monitoring of the main flight parameters...

Haptic assistance (HA) has been shown to be useful in a wide variety of applications by providing the benefits of automation while keeping the human in the loop. In recent years, providing additional visual feedback has been found to provide benefits to HA interfaces by complementing their advantages and mitigating their weaknesses. However, the...

Aito has developed a technology that can be placedunderneath surfaces to give haptic feedback. They make use of piezoelectricdiscs to sense a pressure difference and actuate a pulse if this differencereaches a certain level. This system is possible because of the piezoelectriccrystals in the discs. These crystals create...

Telemanipulation systems - in 1925 a vision to remotelytreat patients, today widely adopted in a variety of applications - allow humanoperators to perform tasks which otherwise could not be performed, due to, forexample, limitations with respect to distance (e.g., space), scale (e.g.,surgery or micro-assembly) or hostile...

In this thesis, we focus on flexible haptic feedback applications which rely on the sensation of touch to display a feedback to the user that establishes a system to user interaction. Piezocomposites made of piezoceramic and polymer phases can be used here due to their high flexibility and piezoelectric properties that enable them to deform...

An integral part of creating compelling and useful immersive virtual environments is the presence of haptic feedback, where both kinesthetic and cutaneous feedback convey unique information critical to object handling and manipulation. State-of-the-art haptic gloves are broadening the workspace and degrees of freedom for hand motion in VR,...
