Abstract

Objective: This study investigated the effectiveness of force augmentation in haptic perception tasks. Background: Considerable engineering effort has been devoted to developing force augmented reality (AR) systems to assist users in delicate procedures like microsurgery. In contrast, far less has been done to char- acterize the behavioral outcomes of these systems, and no research has systematically examined the impact of sensory and perceptual processes on force augmentation effectiveness. Method: Using a handheld force magnifier as an exem- plar haptic AR, we conducted three experiments to char- acterize its utility in the perception of force and stiffness. Experiments 1 and 2 measured, respectively, the user’s ability to detect and differentiate weak force (
