Title:


    VibroTracker: a Vibrotactile Sensor Tracking Objects

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 15


Description:


    Although vibrotactile feedback enlivens virtual interaction, it is difficult to measure actual vibrations of moving objects. Our Vibro- Tracker system achieves this with an optical gaze controller and a laser Doppler vibrometer, enabling users to relive the vibrotactile sensations experienced by others.
