Vision and Touch

Virtual Reality Research Group


Humans, like other animals, integrate information from multiple sensory modalities when making perceptual judgements about properties of the world. In collaboration with the Haptic Robotics group of Prof. William Harwin (School of Systems Engineering), work in the VR lab is focused on understanding how sensory information is integrated from vision and touch during interactive naturalistic tasks. To do this we use Haptic force-feedback devices in conjunction with VR to allow people to touch, pick-up and interact with 3D simulated objects.
