Design and Experimental Evaluation of an Electrorheological Haptic Module with Embedded Sensing

We present a miniature haptic module based on electrorheological fluid, designed for conveying combined stiffness and vibrotactile sensations at a small scale. Haptic feedback is produced through electrorheological fluid’s controllable resistive force …

A compact and compliant electrorheological actuator for generating a wide range of haptic sensations

Robust haptic devices that can convey the entire spectrum of human touch perception are necessary to afford realistic haptic experiences. For vivid and immersive interaction, a combination of both tactile and kinesthetic information must be presented …

Application of Electrorheological Fluid for Conveying Realistic Haptic Feedback in Touch Interfaces

Realistic haptic feedback is necessary to provide meaningful touch information to users of numerous technologies, such as virtual reality, mobile devices and robotics. For a device to convey realistic haptic feedback, two touch sensations must be …

Design, modeling, and evaluation of a slim haptic actuator based on electrorheological fluid

Realistic haptic feedback is needed to provide information to users of numerous technologies, such as virtual reality, mobile devices, and robotics. For a device to convey realistic haptic feedback, two touch sensations must be present: tactile …

Application of Electro-Rheological Fluids for Conveying Realistic Haptic Feedback

For a device to convey realistic haptic feedback, two touch sensations must be present: tactile feedback and kinesthetic feedback. Tactile feedback consists of the sensations felt at the surface of one’s skin and just underneath it, while kinesthetic …

Experimental evaluation of a miniature haptic actuator based on electrorheological fluids

Haptic feedback is desired for numerous applications including simulators, teleoperations, entertainment and more. While many devices today feature vibrotactile feedback, most do not provide kinesthetic feedback. To address the need for both …
