Mid-air haptic interaction

Touching virtual objects in mid-air.

The project experiments with the Ultraleap technology that provides haptic sensations in mid-air using ultrasounds.
The objective is to investigate the potential of haptic technology for multisensory interaction in augmented and virtual reality applications.

An experiment analyses the accuracy for recognizing and discriminating the haptic sensations, and identifies parameters for designing easy to perceive an recognise stimuli.
