Visual and auditory information are predominant in modern multimedia systems. In contrast, processing and in particular efficient communication of haptic data have not been a field of intense research so far. This is surprising given the fact that we as humans rely heavily on the haptic modality to interact with our environment. With recent advances in Virtual Reality (VR), Man-Machine Interaction, Telerobotics, Telepresence, and Teleaction, however, the topic of haptic communication and computation is rapidly gaining in relevance and is becoming an enabling technology for many novel fields of application. The laboratory provides the participants with a detailed overview of the theoretical background and the implementation of haptic communication and computing approaches.
