Robot Supported Virtual and Augmented Reality

By Emanuel Vonach


In this dissertation different aspects from research in the fields of Tangible User Interfaces, encounter-type devices and Passive Haptics are combined to investigate the benefits that robots offer for providing haptic feedback in Virtual and Augmented Reality. Robotic elements like micro drives and robotic arms are employed for the actuation of passive or active physical objects. In that way physical props can be collocated with virtual counterparts to allow high fidelity, natural interaction.
