Abstract: This work proposes a haptic-enabled immersive virtual reality system, capable of conveying the sensation of touching objects made of different materials by rendering pressure and texture stimuli through a moving platform and a vibrotactile motor. At the beginning, the virtual environment is composed of three objects made of different materials and placed on the table. A hand model is also rendered to mimic the user’s hand pose. After a familiarization phase, subjects are presented with a different environment, having only one object on the table and whose material is hidden. Users have to interact with it and guess its material.
