The Interaction Laboratory (former Haptics and Virtual Reality Laboratory) at POSTECH, directed by Prof. Seungmoon Choi, seeks to find and design easy, effective, and novel interaction methods between human users and a system of interest, e.g., computers, robots, cars, and electronic device, with emphasis on physical interaction where the human somatosensory system has the major role.

New Members!

Two new members entered the interaction lab in the fall semester of 2022. Heeyeon Kim (left) and Jaehyeok An (right) started their degrees with a master’s program.

New Publications!

In 2022, we published several papers about haptic perception/rendering, novel interaction methods/systems, and 4D motion effects. For haptic perception, “Perceived Intensity Model of Dual-Frequency Superimposed Vibration: Pythagorean Sum” was accepted in IEEE ToH, “Perception of Electrostatic Friction Stimuli in Free Surface Exploration” was presented in the IEEE Haptics Symposium, and “A Preliminary Study on the Perceptual Independence Between Vibrotactile and Thermal Senses” was published in the EuroHaptics 2022. For novel interaction methods, our research about “Vibration-Augmented Buttons: Information Transmission Capacity and Application to Interaction Design” was presented in the 2022 CHI. About 4D motion effects, “Data-Driven Rendering of Motion Effects for Walking Sensation in Different Gaits” was presented in the 2022 ToH. For more information, please see our publications tab.
