Affective Haptics Research and Interaction Design
Emotion is a salient property of the sense of touch. From a design perspective, the present study explores the affective haptics and human affective response, device analysis and interaction design. Firstly, the affective evaluation method - the Valence-Arousal Space - is analyzed in terms of haptic physiology, and the subjective and objective affective detection methods are illustrated, as well as the connection of human haptic valence and haptic stimulus by physiology research. Secondly, a series of affective haptic devices are analyzed according to human affective responses. Lastly, some affective haptics design guidelines and principles are introduced from a design perspective with the help of affective haptics research results.
