Skin Deformation Feedback for Force Sensory Substitution in Teleoperation and Virtual Reality Training
For this work, we developed a wearable skin deformation device that is worn on the tip of the finger. The devices have two separate components, the first of which is a finger grounding interface that straps to the medial phalanx. The interface holds a magnetic tracking sensor from an Ascension 3D Guidance trakSTAR system, which provides tracking information about the position and orientation of the fingers in free space at 200 Hz.
