A Proposed New Design for an Educational Hap Tics Device

Author : Anupam Garg 1

Date of Publication :7th March 2016

Abstract: Haptic technology refers to technology that interfaces to the user via the sense of touch. The user applies force, create vibrations and give motion with the help of the haptic device. So basically we are talking about an input device that has force feedback. A major benefit of educational haptic device is its hands-on nature. This makes the learning process more compelling for most students, and underscores the connection between science, technology, engineering, mathematical theory and physical reality. Haptic devices that provide force and tactile feedback are programmed to generate physical interactions that help the students to improve practical knowledge about their scientific and mathematical subjects. Haptic devices also help to generate the need for interdisciplinary robotics education, and can inspire even very young students to enter these fields. In this paper, we have proposed a design for a haptic device and its application for the students at undergraduate, graduate, and grade school level to provide knowledge about the educational kits used for different lab experiments.
