Paper Abstract

This paper describes a proposed collaborative research effort between the University of Illinois at Chicago and Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island. The goal of this research effort is to develop a conceptual framework and an experimental test bed for analysis and design of systems through which a human can have haptic interaction with geographically remote environment. This paper discusses the initial efforts in the development of an experimental test bed for a Haptic Information Communication System (HICS) at Roger Williams University. We present considerations for designing a system capable of remote haptic interaction and present initial conceptual designs of the experimental platform.
