VibroTac: An Ergonomic And Versatile Usable Vibrotactile Feedback Device

Schätzle, Simon and Ende, Tobias and Wüsthoff, Tilo and Preusche, Carsten (2010) VibroTac: An Ergonomic And Versatile Usable Vibrotactile Feedback Device. In: Proceedings of, pp. 705-710. 19th International Symposium in Robot und Human Interactive Communication, 12-15 Sept 2010, Viareggio; italy. ISBN 978-1-4244-7989-4.



Abstract— This paper presents an ergonomic vibrotactile feedback device for the human arm. Due to the developed con- cept, the device can be used for a large spectrum of applications and a wide range of arm diameters since vibration segments are self-aligning to their intended positions. Furthermore, the device improves user convenience and movement capability as it is battery powered and controlled through a wireless communication interface. Vibrotactile stimuli are used to give collision feedback or guidance information to the human arm when interacting with a Virtual Reality scenario. The usefulness of this device has been shown in a Virtual Reality automotive assembly verification and a telerobotic system.
