   Human-machine Interaction Lab focus on haptic interaction. Our goal is to discover and understand the mechanism of haptic in information communication, and to make creation and invention using the mechanism. Furthermore, we discuss the human-machine interaction mechanism under multi-sense channels, including haptic, visual and audio channels, and utilize the mechanism in various application areas.

   Haptics is a fundamental communication channel between human and environment. Various information, such as softness/hardness, coldness/hotness, thickness/thinness and shape of objects, could all be sensed by touch. Complex and subtle feeling communication can be realized via haptics.

   Haptic interaction discusses how to improve the communication between human and computer, and the communication between human and robots. Its application areas include: surgery simulation, entertainment, tele-robot, computer-aided-design and industrial design etc.
