Research Focuses

Our research covers diverse aspects of tactile human-machine interaction. Here, the research group combines competencies and interests in the areas of conception, development, and evaluation of interfaces. 

We focus on the following:

  • hardware development, e.g. vibrotactile displays or control devices 
  • software development, e.g. data formats or design tools for tactons
  • Integration of tactile interfaces in (protective) clothing
  • Usability of multimodal systems and tactile ones in particular
  • Fundamental research on the perception and interpretation of tactons
