DSI Helping Deakin University to Model Haptic Feedback

The Defence Science Institute is supporting research at Deakin University to develop sophisticated high-fidelity haptic feedback of the standard required to give extremely realistic feedback to participants in virtual reality military simulations. Specifically this research provides the sensory “feel” necessary to simulate the operation of hand gun. This includes the cocking of the weapon, an accurate representation of the trigger pull and of course the recoil.
