Evaluation of a Haptic/Audio System for 3-D Targeting Tasks

While common user interface designs tend to focus on visual feedback, other sensory channels may be used in order to reduce the cognitive load of the visual one. In this paper, non-visual environments are presented in order to investigate how users exploit information delivered through haptic and audio channels. A first experiment is designed to explore the effectiveness of a haptic audio system evaluated in a single target localization task: a virtual magnet metaphor is exploited for the haptic rendering, while a parameter mapping sonification of the distance to the source, combined with 3D audio spatialisation, is used for the audio one. An evaluation is carried out in terms of the effectiveness of separate haptic and auditory feedbacks versus the combined multimodal feedback.
