Filippo Sanfilippo, Lars Ivar Hatledal and Kristin Ytterstad Pettersen. A Fully-Immersive Haptic, Audio and Visual Experience Framework. Accepted for publication to the Proceeding of the 11th IEEE International Conference on Innovations in Information Technology (IIT’15), Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 2015.
This paper presents the development of an open-source low-cost framework for a fully-immersive haptic, audio and visual experience. This framework is realised by exclusively adopting commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components and tools. In particular, vibration actuators and open-source electronics are employed in the design of a pair of novel and inexpensive haptic gloves. These gloves allow for establishing a kinaesthetic link between a human operator interacting with a computer-generated environment. Remote touch applications are possible. In the context of Smart Cities, this technology may be adopted to enhance the interface between nature and culture by stimulating the senses or as a complement to the landscape.
I thank all my co-authors and I congratulate all of them for their contribution.
