The Experimental Haptics course covers the field of computer haptics as it relates to computing force or touch feedback in virtual environments. The goal is to develop virtual reality simulations and applications that incorporate haptic interaction.
Theoretical topics include haptic rendering in 3-D virtual environments, simulation of haptic interaction with rigid and deformable objects, haptic interfaces, psychophysics of touch. Applied topics include an introduction to the CHAI 3D haptics library, implementation of algorithms for haptic rendering, collision detection, and deformable body simulation.Course Information & PoliciesStudent Information Form
