    Abstract

    Haptics has provided people with new computer interaction styles across a range of applications. However, it is difficult to share haptic experiences from haptic virtual environments (HVEs). In this paper, we introduce a genetic algorithm (GA) approach, which is used to identify the virtual object’s properties (e.g. stiffness, friction coefficient and geometry parameters) based on haptic recordings, so that the haptic rendering can be reproduced without requiring the original HVE software to be deployed.
