IEEE Transaction on Haptics

IEEE Transaction on Haptics

The IEEE Transactions on Haptics addresses science, technology and applications associated with 
information acquisition and object manipulation through touch. Haptics is an interdisciplinary 
science that concerns consumer electronics as well as robotics, teleoperation and telemedicine, for example. Haptic interactions relevant to this journal include all aspects of manual exploration and manipulation by humans, machines and interactions between the two, performed in real, virtual, teleoperated or networked environments. Research areas of relevance to this publication include, but are not be limited to, the following topics:

  • Human haptic and multi-sensory perception and action 
  • Haptic interactions via passive or active tools and machines 
  • Devices that sense, enable, or create haptic interactions locally or at a distance 
  • Haptic rendering and its association with graphic and auditory rendering in virtual reality 
  • Algorithms, controls, and dynamics of haptic devices, users, and interactions between the two 
  • Human-machine performance and safety with haptic feedback 
  • Haptics in the context of human-computer interactions 
  • Systems and networks using haptic devices and interactions, including multi-modal feedback 
  • Application of the above, for example in areas such as education, rehabilitation, medicine, computer-aided design, skills training, computer games, driver controls, simulation and visualization

The Transactions on Haptics are published quarterly. The journal is financially co-sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society. It is also technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society and the IEEE Computer Society.
