Spatial perception of mid-air ultrasound haptic rendering

Focused ultrasound arrays [1][2] have recently emerged as a technology for providing tactile stimuli at a distance in human-computer-interaction (HCI) applications. They function by focusing the acoustic beams from several ultrasound speakers in order to create localized regions of oscillating high air pressure which elicit vibrotactile sensations when encountering the…

Ultrasound mid-air haptic guidance for robotic teleoperation

In teleoperation, it is often desirable to guide the user during the given task, e.g., to rapidly reach a defined target or avoid forbidden regions. A conventional approach is to use virtual fixtures [1], which apply forces on the master end effector to help steer the user’s hand towards, e.g.,…
