How to Enrich Interaction In Virtual Environments Using Tactile Feedback

The European Project TACTILITY on Tactile feedback-enriched virtual interaction was launched in Donostia-San Sebastián on July 8-9, 2019

On July 8 and 9, the kick-off meeting of the EU-funded project TACTILITY– “TACTIle feedback-enriched virtual interaction through virtual realITY and beyond” took place in Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain. The project is a multidisciplinary innovation and research action with the overall aim of incorporating rich and meaningful tactile information into the novel interaction systems with virtual environments. By mimicking the characteristics of the natural tactile feedback, it will substantially increase the quality of immersive virtual reality and of tele-manipulation.

TACTILITYhas a duration of 36 months. The EU funding is €3‘799‘946.25. The project is coordinated by Dr. Thierry Keller from TECNALIA Research & Innovation (Spain). The project consortium comprises the following nine partners from six European countries: TECNALIA Research & Innovation (Spain), Aalborg Universitet (Denmark), Universita degli Studi di Genova (Italy), INRIA - Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique (France), Universitat de Valencia (Spain), Tecnalia Serbia Doo Beograd (Serbia), Manus Machinae BV (Netherlands), SMARTEX S.R.L. (Italy), and IMMERSION (France).
