Presentation at the IEEE World Haptics Conference 2019

Our new publication “Effect of Remote Masking on Detection of Electrovibration” is accepted to IEEE World Haptics Conference 2019. I presented our paper orally at the conference held in Tokyo, Japan. Abstract: Masking has been used to study human perception of tactile stimuli, including those created on haptic touch screens. Earlier studies have investigated the […]

Invited Seminar at the Facebook Reality Labs

It was a great pleasure to give a talk about my research at the Facebook Reality Labs in Redmond! Title: Generating Haptic Feedback on Touchscreens via ElectrovibrationAbstract: One approach to generating haptic feedback on touch screens is electrovibration. In this technique, the friction force is altered via electrostatic forces, which are developed by applying an alternating voltage […]
