Haptic devices can be controlled based on the model-based approach such as haptic rendering. The human senses can be configured using a simulation that depicts a virtual environment and the contact information regarding the interaction with virtual objects. The haptic sensors are an advancement of technology to recreate and sense the feeling of touch through vibrations, motions and forces that is experienced by the user.
The design and development of haptic based gloves find intense applications in several virtual reality applications. In this paper we propose the design of haptic based gloves, which are portable in nature that allows real time manipulation and interface of virtual components. The paper focusses on a variety of tactile senses based on the sense of touch such as temperature, vibration and the perception of sound using earphones. The microcontroller based approach is further simulated, implemented and tested with the relative virtual reality.
