The IEEE World Haptics Conference 2023 is the premier international conference covering all aspects of haptics including the fundamental scientific findings, technological developments, algorithms and applications. It is a central venue for reporting research results and demonstrating novel capabilities in the field of haptics. The conference offers opportunities to share the most up-to-date scientific discoveries and innovative products.
HIT shared a booth with Haption, and together we demonstrated how tele-operation can be used to simulate, validate and train for remote maintenance operations in challenging environments, like in nuclear facilities. Offering the opportunity to get hands-on experience, throughout most of the conference, people queued at the booth to test their hands on one of our demos: with the Haption Virtuose master arm visitors could experience real hardware tele-operation with a Kinova arm, or virtual tele-operation with the Jenga simulation.
