Abstract

This paper presents the design, implementation, and quantitative evaluation of a haptic player system that is independent from the haptic device, in the context of our HAML-based authoring tool project at the University of Ottawa. The system comprises three components: a haptic recorder, a feature extractor, and the haptic player. The haptic recorder is capable of retrieving, filtering, and storing the data sent by a haptic device in a local database. The feature extractor generates a standardized description of the stored data by utilizing the HAML schema. Finally, the haptic player component recreates a haptic stimulus by utilizing the HAML description of the corresponding stimulus. Haptic stimuli are played back according to the haptic device's features. The experimental evaluation of the proposed HAML-based player showed that the haptic player system is independent from the device used during data recording.
