Project Goal

The goal of this project is to determine the limitations of the human operator in visio-haptic tasks and develop a paradigm for effective integration of visual and haptic feedback such that human operator performance is optimal.
Project 4.1
In this project, the experiments to determine the human limitations and validate the paradigm for effective visual and haptic integration are carried out.
Project 4.2
This project concentrates onthe development of computational models to describe the experiments and the development of the paradigm  for effective visual and haptic integration.
