  • 1. Contents • • • • • • • • Introduction Definition How it works? Working of Phantom Haptic devices Applications Advantages & Disadvantages Conclusion
  • 2. Introduction • Interfaces the user with a virtual environment via the sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, and/or motions to the user. • mechanical stimulation.
  • 3. Definition • Haptic technology, is a tactile feedback technology that takes advantage of a user’s sense of touch by applying forces, vibration and motions to the user. • Haptics: “being able to come into contact with” sense of touch
  • 4. How it works?
  • 5. PHANTOM
  • 6. Other Haptic devices • Cyber glove: • Specialized mouse: A multi agent system observes the user and helps in predicting the next move on the mouse.
  • 7. Applications • Surgical Simulation and Medical Training: remote surgery, with the central workstation and performs in various locations. • Graphical user interfaces:
  • 8. Advantages • Easy to Access And Use. • Conservation: Prototype not required during development, to check the accuracy and to touch the model.
  • 9. Disadvantages • Limited magnitude and not equally well in all directions: Algorithms ensure that component don’t saturate. • Implementation is expensive. • Haptics applications can be extremely complex, requiring highly specialized hardware.
  • 10. Conclusion • Solution for interacting with the virtual environment. • Acts as an input and output device, tracking user physical manipulations as an input and providing realistic touch sensations as an output coordinated with onscreen events.
