Abstract

Force feedback plays an important roll in recognition and manipulation of virtual objects. Recently haptic devices such as PHANToM and HapticMaster are manufactured. In accordance with rapidly growing network technologies, we can easily get electric media resources rpicture and movie and VRML and various digital sound data and so on. However, those electric media resources can only be seen and heard. We can't touch them because there is no software to integrate haptic devices and those electric media resources. In this research , we developed a system that enables users to easy construction of virtual environment with force feedback.We propose that the software for haptic device should have following characteristics. (1) haptic models and haptic rendering function. (2) managing engine of virtual object's behavior. (3) user interaction methods. We implemented the software called Virtual Environment Construction System(VECS).By using this system, we developed 3D shape modeling environment.Through userability study by a large numbers of subjects, effectiveness of the haptic environment is examined.
