Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Seminar.

Title: The HAVEN (Haptic, Auditory, and Visual Environment)

Speaker: Dinesh Pai, Rutgers University

Date: June 15, 2004 1- 2pm

Location: DIMACS Center, CoRE Bldg, Room 431, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ


Humans experience the world with all their senses, including vision, touch, and hearing. Therefore, human interfaces should provide correlated multisensory information that is both realistic and responsive to interaction. I will describe how we can construct such environments with integrated graphics, haptics, and sounds. I will show how we can construct physically based models suitable for multisensory interactive simulation, and how these models could be acquired from the real world. Finally, I will describe the HAVEN, our new Haptic, Auditory, and Visual Environment.
