Can haptic interaction improve the tracking performance in a fetch & pursue task, similar to clay pigeon shooting? In order to answer this question, we challenged the tracking movements of the subjects by a saddle-like moving force field, with the unstable manifold aligned along the moving target and the stable manifold orthogonal to it. The experimental results show a positive effect, suggesting that the internal model acquired by the subjects for compensating the target-linked haptic disturbance can improve the prediction capability of the subjects based on pure visuo-motor feedback.

Abstract

Can haptic interaction improve the tracking performance in a fetch & pursue task, similar to clay pigeon shooting? In order to answer this question, we challenged the tracking movements of the subjects by a saddle-like moving force field, with the unstable manifold aligned along the moving target and the stable manifold orthogonal to it. The experimental results show a positive effect, suggesting that the internal model acquired by the subjects for compensating the target-linked haptic disturbance can improve the prediction capability of the subjects based on pure visuo-motor feedback.
