Abstract

A haptic interface is a device that not only permits the transfer of mechanical information to kinematic receptors but receives mechanical (kinematics, force) inputs from human limbs. Thus, a haptic or force-reflecting interface allows the bi-directional exchange of information between human and machine, where the machine may be a piece of real remote equipment, as in the case of a virtual environment.
