Title: Cross-Field Haptics: Tactile Device Combined with Magnetic and Electrostatic Fields for Push-Pull Haptics
Booth Number: et_0020

Summary: We present a new method of rendering haptic textures that uses electrostatic fields and magnetic fields. In conventional research, a single physical quantity is used to render haptic textures. In contrast, our method combines multiple fields (electrostatic and magnetic fields) simultaneously. We use ferrofluid which is flexible liquid, and electrovibration with adsorption force. While these fields have no direct interference, combining them provides benefits such as multi-resolution haptic images and synergistic effect on haptic perception. We investigated the increase in the variation of texture by comparing each single field methods.
