Strozier Faculty Lecture: Touching the Unreal
Please join us September 13th at 12:15 p.m. for the 2019-2020 Robert I. Strozier Faculty Lecture: "Touching the Unreal: Exploring our Tactile Senses using Haptics" by Dr. Felix Hamza-Lup from the Computer Science department.
From an early age we explore the world around us using multiple senses: we see, taste, smell, and touch objects. Our bodies include a variety of sensors that make us feel alive and facilitate environmental exploration. Haptic systems (those relating to our tactile sense or touch) can stimulate this human tactile system based on computer-generated data, opening new communication channels among their users. Current technological advancements in haptic interfaces combine multiple modalities: tactile, visual and auditory. Dr. Hamza-Lup explores fundamentals of human sensation while highlighting several advanced, haptic-based interfaces and their applications ranging from surgical simulation to elementary training.
Strozier Faculty Lectures are held in the Ogeechee Theater on the Armstrong Campus. The Robert I. Strozier series honors Professor Emeritus of English Robert Strozier who served the Armstrong community for more than four decades.
