Abstract [en]

In this work we aim to facilitate computer mediated multimodal communication and interaction between human and animal based on vibrotactile stimuli. To study and influence the behavior of animals, usually researchers use 2D/3D visual stimuli. However we use vibrotactile pattern based language which provides the opportunity to communicate and interact with animals. We have performed experiment with a vibrotactile based human-animal multimodal communication system to study the effectiveness of vibratory stimuli applied to the animal skin along with audio and visual stimuli. The preliminary results are encouraging and indicate that low-resolution tactual displays are effective in transmitting information.
