The Interaction of Five-Fingered Haptic Controller for Manipulating Object in Virtual Reality

SangHun Nam, Jiyong Lee, Ginam Ko
Abstract—In this paper, we designed a haptic controller interface that can control haptic controller with pressure sensors that collect pressure data from each finger, linear actuators to control different force feedback on each finger, and vibration motor. The haptic controller system consists of haptic controller hardware, haptic controller interface, and game engine module. The haptic controller hardware communicates with haptic controller interface module via serial communication. The game engine interface module performs physics-based interaction between haptic controller and virtual object. We designed the haptic controller interface with previously studied hardware and performed user tests. This paper showed the possibility of more realistic hand operation than the existing VR controller.

Index Terms—Finger interface, haptic controller, object manipulation, virtual reality.
