Conference Proceeding: Edge sharpness perception with force and contact location information[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The effect of contact location information on the perception of virtual edges was investigated by comparing human edge sharpness discrimination under the force-alone and force-plus-contact-location conditions. The virtual object consisted of the 2D profile of an edge with two adjoining surfaces. Edge sharpness JNDs for both conditions increased from about 2 to 7 mm as the edge radii increased from 2.5 to 20.0 mm, and no significant difference was found between the two conditions. A follow-up experiment with the contact-location alone condition resulted in higher (worse) edge sharpness discrimination thresholds, especially at higher edge radius values. Our results suggest that contact location cues alone are capable of conveying edge sharpness information, but that force cues dominate edge sharpness perception when both types of cues are available.World Haptics Conference (WHC), 2011 IEEE; 07/2011
