Additional Information

This framework uses both force feedback and vibration to render various textures. The surface’s geometry, stiffness, and friction are measured so that 3D force and contact acceleration can be calculated during synthesis. Low-frequency components are displayed using a force-feedback device, while high-frequency components are displayed using a voice coil attached to the device.
