Timing Effects on Skin Deformation Haptic Rendering

This project was done in association with the Stanford Collaborative Haptics in Robotics and Medicine (CHARM) Lab. In telerobotic system with haptic feedback, time delays can cause major system instability. Providing haptic feedback through skin deformation is one proposed solution to this instability. This study used a skin deformation device developed by Sony researcher Yasuhisa Kamikawa to investigate the effect that time delays changed the perception of haptic cues provided by a skin deformation haptic device.
