Abstract

Enhancing touch screen interfaces through non-visual cues has been shown to improve performance. In this paper we report on a novel system that explores the usage of a force-sensitive motion-platform enhanced tablet interface to improve multi-modal interaction based on visuo-haptic instead of tactile feedback. Extending mobile touch screen with force-sensitive haptic feedback has potential to enhance performance interacting with GUIs and to improve perception of understanding relations. A user study was performed to determine the perceived recognition of different 3D shapes and the perception of different heights. Furthermore, two application scenarios are proposed to explore our proposed visuo-haptic system. The studies show the positive stance towards the feedback, as well as the found limitations related to perception of feedback.
