  • Evaluation of Skin Deformation Tactile Feedback for Teleoperated Surgical
    • Authors: Zhan Fan Quek;William R. Provancher;Allison M. Okamura;
      Pages: 102 - 113
      Abstract: During interaction with objects using a tool, we experience force and tactile feedback. One form of tactile feedback is local fingerpad skin deformation. In this paper, we provide haptic feedback to users of a teleoperation system through a skin deformation tactile feedback device. The device is able to provide tangential and normal skin deformation in a coupled manner, and is designed so that users can grasp it with a precision grip using multiple fingerpads. By applying skin deformation feedback on multiple fingerpads, the device is able to provide multi-degree-of-freedom interaction force direction and magnitude information to the user. To evaluate the effectiveness of this approach for the performance of teleoperated manipulation tasks, we performed a study in which 20 participants used a teleoperation system to perform one of two manipulation tasks (peg transfer and tube connection) using force feedback, skin deformation feedback, and the combination of both feedback. Results showed that participants are able to use all feedback to improve task performance compared to the case without haptic feedback, although the degree of improvement depended on the nature of the task. The feedback also improved situation awareness, felt consistent with prior experience, and did not affect concentration on the task, as reported by participants.

  • Gaze Augmented Hand-Based Kinesthetic Interaction: What You See is What
           You Feel
    • Authors: Zhenxing Li;Deepak Akkil;Roope Raisamo;
      Pages: 114 - 127
      Abstract: Kinesthetic interaction between the user and the computer mainly utilizes the hand-based input with force-feedback devices. There are two major shortcomings in hand-based kinesthetic interaction: physical fatigue associated with continuous hand movements and the limited workspace of current force-feedback devices for accurately exploring a large environment. To address these shortcomings, we developed two interaction techniques that use eye gaze as an additional input modality: HandGazeTouch and GazeTouch. Hand GazeTouch combines eye gaze and hand motion as the input for kinesthetic interaction, i.e., it uses eye gaze to point and hand motion to touch. GazeTouch replaces all hand motions in touch behavior with eye gaze, i.e., it uses eye gaze to point and gaze dwell time to trigger the touch. In both interaction techniques, the user feels the haptic feedback through the force-feedback device. The gaze-based techniques were evaluated in a softness discrimination experiment by comparing them to the traditional kinesthetic interface, HandTouch, which only uses the hand-based input. The results indicate that the HandGazeTouch technique is not only as accurate, natural, and pleasant as the traditional interface but also more efficient.

  • Hand-Exoskeleton Assisted Progressive Neurorehabilitation Using Impedance
           Adaptation Based Challenge Level Adjustment Method
    • Authors: Anirban Chowdhury;Shyam Sunder Nishad;Yogesh Kumar Meena;Ashish Dutta;Girijesh Prasad;
      Pages: 128 - 140
      Abstract: This paper presents an underactuated design of a robotic hand exoskeleton, and a challenge based neurorehabilitation strategy. The exoskeleton is designed to reproduce natural human fingertip paths during extension and grasping, keeping minimal kinematic complexity. It facilitates an impedance adaptation based trigged assistance control strategy by switching between active non-assist and passive assistance modes. In the active non-assist mode, the exoskeleton motion follows the applied fingertip forces based on an impedance model. If the applied fingertip forces are inadequate, the passive assistance mode is triggered. The impedance parameters are updated at regular intervals based on the user performance, to implement a challenge based rehabilitation strategy. A six-week long hand therapy, conducted on four chronic stroke patients, resulted in significant (p-value

  • Haptic Assistance Improves Tele-Manipulation With Two Asymmetric Slaves
    • Authors: Jeroen van Oosterhout;Cock J. M. Heemskerk;Henri Boessenkool;Marco R. de Baar;Frans C.T. van der Helm;David A. Abbink;
      Pages: 141 - 153
      Abstract: Tele-manipulation of heavy loads typically requires the simultaneous use of two asymmetric slaves: a crane for vertical weight support and a robot for accurate lateral positioning. The industrial standard prescribes a pair of operators for such tasks (one operator to control each slave), although in principle one operator might control both slaves with a single, hybrid interface. Accurate and safe co-operative handling of the expensive and fragile heavy components is difficult, presumably due to problems in the coordination of the subtasks and the lack of mutual awareness between the two operators. This study proposes a novel haptic assistance system to improve subtask coordination and task performance. Its novelty consists of haptically linking operators/interfaces through the joint task environment. The system's efficacy is evaluated with 15 pairs of co-operators and 15 individual uni-manual operators who maneuvered a heavy load through a bounded path in Virtual Reality. Haptic assistance improves task completion time for both groups. It also reduces control activity and self-reported workload without affecting a number of critical errors made by the operators. Moreover, without haptic assistance, uni-manual operators perform worse than co-operators, but this difference between the interfaces was not found with haptic assistance.

  • Increasing Impact by Mechanical Resonance for Teleoperated Hammering
    • Authors: Manuel Aiple;Jan Smisek;André Schiele;
      Pages: 154 - 165
      Abstract: Series elastic actuators (SEAs) are interesting for usage in harsh environments as they are more robust than rigid actuators. This paper shows how SEAs can be used in teleoperation to increase output velocity in dynamic tasks. A first experiment is presented that tested human ability to achieve higher hammerhead velocities with a flexible hammer than with a rigid hammer, and to evaluate the influence of the resonance frequency. In this experiment, 13 participants executed a hammering task in direct manipulation using flexible hammers in four conditions with resonance frequencies of 3.0 Hz to 9.9 Hz and one condition with a rigid hammer. Then, a second experiment is presented that tested the ability of 32 participants to reproduce the findings of the first experiment in teleoperated manipulation with different feedback conditions: with visual and force feedback, without visual feedback, without force feedback, and with a communication delay of 40 ms. The results indicate that humans can exploit the mechanical resonance of a flexible system to at least double the output velocity without combined force and vision feedback. This is an unexpected result, allowing the design of simpler and more robust teleoperators for dynamic tasks.

  • Rendering Stiff Virtual Walls Using Model Matching Based Haptic Controller
    • Authors: Indrajit Desai;Abhishek Gupta;Debraj Chakraborty;
      Pages: 166 - 178
      Abstract: This paper presents a model matching framework for design of haptic controllers. The controller design problem is formulated as a sequence of H∞ optimization problems in order to achieve maximal transparency bandwidth. This enables automatic synthesis of robust controllers to achieve a desired bandwidth while limiting actuator forces and guaranteeing stability. This method is applied to address the problem of accurate rendering of high-stiffness virtual walls. Simulation of virtual walls of various stiffnesses are tested on a PHANToM Premium 1.5, at a sampling rate of 1 KHz. The sampled nature of the interface, sensor quantization and Coulomb friction impose limits on the maximum stiffness that can be stably achieved with the commonly used open loop impedance controller. Results presented here demonstrate that the proposed controllers can be used to accurately render virtual walls with stiffness up to 5000 N/m in an oscillation free manner. This stiffness value is well beyond stability limits for the PHANToM under open loop impedance control. Relationships between the weighting functions and the transparency bandwidth are established to outline a procedure for selection and tuning of the weighting functions. Specifically, it is shown that through appropriate choice of weighting functions high-frequency oscillations observed during rendering of stiff surfaces can be eliminated. The passivity of the designed controllers over the frequency range of operation is verified.

  • The Perception of Ultrasonic Square Reductions of Friction With Variable
           Sharpness and Duration
    • Authors: David Gueorguiev;Eric Vezzoli;Thomas Sednaoui;Laurent Grisoni;Betty Lemaire-Semail;
      Pages: 179 - 188
      Abstract: The human perception of square ultrasonic modulation of the finger-surface friction was investigated during active tactile exploration by using short frictional cues of varying duration and sharpness. In a first experiment, we asked participants to discriminate the transition time and duration of short square ultrasonic reductions of friction. They proved very sensitive to discriminate millisecond differences in these two parameters with the average psychophysical thresholds being 2.3-2.4 ms for both parameters. A second experiment focused on the perception of square friction reductions with variable transition times and durations. We found that for durations of the stimulation larger than 90 ms, participants often perceived three or four edges when only two stimulations were presented while they consistently felt two edges for signals shorter than 50 ms. A subsequent analysis of the contact forces induced by these ultrasonic stimulations during slow and fast active exploration showed that two identical consecutive ultrasonic pulses can induce significantly different frictional dynamics especially during fast motion of the finger. These results confirm the human sensitivity to transient frictional cues and suggest that the human perception of square reductions of friction can depend on their sharpness and duration as well as on the speed of exploration.

  • Toward Whole-Hand Kinesthetic Feedback: A Survey of Force Feedback Gloves
    • Authors: Dangxiao Wang;Meng Song;Afzal Naqash;Yukai Zheng;Weiliang Xu;Yuru Zhang;
      Pages: 189 - 204
      Abstract: Force feedback gloves have found many applications in fields such as teleoperation and virtual reality. In order to enhance the immersive feeling of interaction with remote or virtual environments, glove-like haptic devices are used, which enable users to touch and manipulate virtual objects in a more intuitive and direct way via the dexterous manipulation and sensitive perception capabilities of human hands. In this survey, we aim to identify the gaps between existing force feedback gloves and the desired ones that can provide robust and realistic sensation of the interaction with diverse virtual environments. By examining existing force feedback gloves, the pros and cons of existing design solutions to the major sub-systems including sensing, actuation, control, transmission and structure are discussed. Future research topics are put forward with design challenges being elaborated. Innovative design solutions are needed to enable the utility of wearable haptic gloves in the upcoming virtual reality era.

  • Unilateral and Bilateral Virtual Springs: Contact Transitions Unmask
           Device Dynamics
    • Authors: Emma Treadway;R. Brent Gillespie;
      Pages: 205 - 216
      Abstract: The study of haptic perception often makes use of haptic rendering to display the variety of impedances needed to run an experiment. Unacknowledged in many cases is the influence of the selected device hardware on what the user will feel, particularly in interactions featuring frequencies above the control bandwidth. While human motion is generally limited to 10 Hz, virtual environments with unilateral constraints are subject to excitation of a wider frequency spectrum through contact transitions. We employ the effective impedance decomposition to discuss the effects of parasitics outside the rendering bandwidth. We also introduce an analysis of the admittance and impedance controllers with respect to sensitivity to load cell noise. We explore these effects using a single degree-of-freedom device that can be configured for either a low or high mechanical advantage in a perceptual experiment, with experimental conditions designed through application of the effective impedance decomposition. We find that the excitation of high frequencies through contact transitions negatively impacts humans' ability to distinguish between stiffnesses.

  • A Force Bounding Approach in Joint Space for Interacting With Dynamic
           Multi-Degrees of Freedom Virtual Objects
    • Authors: Sang-Yun Baek;Sungjun Park;Jeha Ryu;
      Pages: 217 - 223
      Abstract: This When you submit your corrections, please either annotate the IEEE Proof PDF or send a list of corrections. Do not send new source files as we do not reconvert them at this production stage. '> paper proposes a new relative motion-based dynamic force bounding approach (dynamic FBA) for stably interacting with dynamic multi-degrees of freedom (DOF) virtual objects. Considering the relative motion of the moving virtual object and human operator, a new multi-DOF passivity condition is derived in the joint space to easily cover the rotational motion in the task space. This approach overcomes some of the limitations of previous static approaches, which could not display the interaction force with moving virtual objects because they only considered the motion of the operator in their controllers. To validate the effectiveness of the proposed approach, various dynamic scenarios are tested. The experimental and simulation results demonstrate that the proposed approach ensures stability and direction transparency of the haptic interaction with any passive or slightly active dynamic multi-DOF system.
