Haptic Feedback Through Weight Shifting

weight-shifting units: <br />U-shaped cassis, guide bars, steel weight


Here we introduce an alternative possibility to create haptic feedback through weight shifting. Our system is based on a simple electro mechanic construction to shift a weight along two parallel guide bars.

We integrated this setup into a sample scenario including a handheld input device and an application scenario. The idea is to develop a fork lift simulation. The user controls a fork lift truck through a virtual environment using the haptic feedback input device.
