Haptics Technologies: Bringing Touch to Multimedia by Abdulmotaleb El Saddik, Mauricio Orozco, Mohamad Eid,

By Abdulmotaleb El Saddik, Mauricio Orozco, Mohamad Eid, Jongeun Cha

The time period “haptics” refers back to the technological know-how of sensing and manipulation via contact. a number of disciplines resembling biomechanics, psychophysics, robotics, neuroscience, and software program engineering converge to aid haptics, and usually, haptic learn is finished through 3 groups: the robotics group, the human computing device interface neighborhood, and the digital truth community.

This e-book isn't the same as the other booklet that has checked out haptics. The authors deal with haptics as a brand new medium instead of only a area inside one of many above components. They describe human haptic notion and interfaces and current basics in haptic rendering and modeling in digital environments. assorted software program architectures for standalone and networked haptic platforms are defined, and the authors exhibit the substantial software spectrum of this rising know-how besides its accompanying traits. the first aim is to supply a entire evaluation and a realistic realizing of haptic applied sciences. An appreciation of the shut courting among the big variety of disciplines that represent a haptic procedure is a key precept in the direction of with the ability to construct winning collaborative haptic environments.

Structured as a connection with permit for quick lodging of the problems involved, this ebook is meant for researchers attracted to learning contact and strength suggestions to be used in technological multimedia structures in desktop technological know-how, electric engineering, or different similar disciplines. With its novel process, it paves the way in which for exploring study tendencies and demanding situations in such fields as interpersonal conversation, video games, or army applications.

Trust in Technology: A Socio-Technical Perspective by Karen Clarke, Gillian Hardstone, Mark Rouncefield, Ian

By Karen Clarke, Gillian Hardstone, Mark Rouncefield, Ian Sommerville

This e-book encapsulates a few paintings performed within the DIRC venture excited about belief and accountability in socio-technical platforms. It brings jointly more than a few disciplinary techniques - desktop technology, sociology and software program engineering - to provide a socio-technical platforms viewpoint at the matters surrounding belief in know-how in complicated settings. desktops can in basic terms result in their purported advantages if performance, clients and value are crucial to their layout and deployment. therefore, know-how can merely be relied on in situ and in daily use if those concerns were delivered to undergo at the means of know-how layout, implementation and use. The stories precise during this publication examine the ways that belief in expertise is completed and/or labored round in daily events in a number of settings - together with hospitals, a steelworks, a public enquiry, the monetary prone region and air site visitors keep watch over. while the various authors right here could already be identified for his or her ethnographic paintings, this booklet strikes on from debts of 'field stories' to teach how the DIRC undertaking has utilised the information from those reviews in an interdisciplinary type, related to desktop scientists, software program engineers and psychologists, in addition to sociologists. Chapters draw at the empirical reports yet are organised round analytical issues with regards to belief that are on the center of the authors' socio-technical strategy which exhibits the nuanced ways that know-how is used, neglected, subtle and so forth in daily settings.
