Collaboration in Multi-modal Virtual Worlds: Comparing Touch, Text, Voice and Video [chapter]

Eva-Lotta Salinäs
2002 Computer Supported Cooperative Work  
Evaluation of collaboration through different communication modes is not as common in the area of CVE's as in the area of telecommunications and computer-mediated communication (CMC).  ...  The reason for this is that the mode of communication as well as task contexts, spatial affordances, information presentation and manipulation of common objects can be varied in order to understand effects  ...  Kirsten Rassmus-Gröhn and Calle Sjöström are also gratefully acknowledged for their contributions to the haptic force feedback study.  ...

The Role of Haptics in Immersive Telecommunication Environments

M. Reiner
2004 IEEE transactions on circuits and systems for video technology (Print)  
This paper explores the role of haptics in immersive telecommunication applications and analyzes the contribution of haptics to the sense of presence in a variety of applications.  ...  Haptics in the natural world supports efficient bodily action and, in a tacit way, supports development of higher reasoning skills. This requires resonance and embodied presence.  ...  Touch and manipulation in virtual worlds require engineering techniques such as collision display and detection, appropriate force feedback, hand and arm tracking, and haptic rendering. A.  ...
