Innovation Solutions Program: Haptic System



September 17, 2018


Interactive simulation is a valuable approach for teaching manipulative skills within high skills professions, including medicine. A haptic system recreates the sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations or motions to the user. Current interactive simulation employs costly and bulky haptics systems to provide sensitive touch sensorial feedback to the user. The NRC's objective is to democratize interactive simulation for the medical community at-large by developing interactive simulation that is affordable, yet realistic, and interacts with mobile computing platforms such as iOS and Android.  This objective requires smaller-scale and cost-effective haptics.
