Drop the Controller: The Impact of Haptics on Virtual Training & Simulation

28 Apr 2022
DisTec Theatre
Leading head-mounted displays deliver immersive visuals and audio, but they’re packaged with plastic controllers that are designed for gaming. Military VR users need to use their hands naturally and feel what they see. The success of military training and simulation applications often depends on having sufficient realism and accuracy. Learn how a new generation of wearable products deliver true-contact haptics through a combination of detailed tactile feedback, force-feedback exoskeletons, and sub-millimeter motion tracking. Hear how application developers for government and enterprise have embraced this technology to improve virtual training, design, education and even robotics.
