"Information Coding by Means of Adaptive Controlling Torques"
Presented in the context of
HCI International 2014
22-27 June 2014, Crete, Greece
"The investigated approach shows that the currently rarely used haptic perception channel can systematically be applied for information transfer. The encoding of information by variable controlling torques and the haptic transmission of information to the user via a central control element can lead to a reduction of visual distraction and cognitive stress in difficult tasks. Furthermore, this approach allows innovative interfaces so that the usability of products can be improved and the operational safety can be increased."
