ShearTouch - Towards a wearable tactile feedback device to provide continuous shear force sensation in real time (2020)
Conference Proceeding
Wells, O., Pipe, T., Dogramadzi, S., & Studley, M. (2020). ShearTouch - Towards a wearable tactile feedback device to provide continuous shear force sensation in real time. In Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems (287-298). https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-030-63486-5_30

Force feedback in current teleoperation systems typically only provides haptic/kinaesthetic feedback to operators in the form of normal forces. However, it is proposed in this paper that the introduction of shear (or lateral) force feedback to operat...
