Abstract

The aim of study is to complement and enhance the haptic sensation of human fingers that have different tactile perceptions owing to the age and proficiency. In this paper, we developed a wearable haptic augmentation system to modulate the haptic sensations in real-time using polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) skin vibration sensor and vibro-tactile feedback. We observed that the users could get more exhilarating experiences when touching the surrounding objects, and recognition of haptic properties became easier. The experimental result shows that the haptic sensation obtained by our proposed condition is approximately 5% higher than the no haptic feedback condition.
