Development of a vibrotactile dataglove composed of 11 ERM actuators in an experiment to identify 3D shape, sizes and weights.
These experiments demonstrate the feasability of using the vibrotactile technology to carry out complex tasks, such as 3D shape, size and weight identification without visual guidance. The vibrotactile glove was built using the Vitaki Toolkit, with 11 ERM actuators attached to the fabric. It uses the PhaseSpace Impulse system to capture the motion, along with an inverse kinematics algorithm to calculate the skeleton and the position of the actuators in space.
