The Effective Combination of Haptic and Auditory Textural Information

By Marilyn Rose McGee, Phil Gray and Stephen Brewster


With the increasing availability and quality of auditory and haptic means of interaction, it is not unusual to incorporate many modalities in interfaces rather than the purely visual. The user can be powerfully affected however when information presented in different modalities are combined to become multimodal. Providing interface designers with the means to implement haptic-audio interfaces mi ght result in adverse effects to interaction unless they are also equipped with structured knowledge on how to select effective combinations of such information. This work introduces Integration of Information as one important dimension of haptic-audio interaction and explores its effects in the context of multimodal texture perception. The range and resolution of available textures through force feedback interaction is a design consideration that might benefit from the addition of audio. This work looks at the effect of combining auditory and haptic textures on people's judgment of the roughne..
