Description
In "Preemptive Action" we found out that it is possible to optimize the timing of haptic systems to accelerate human reaction time without fully compromising the user' sense of agency. While haptics systems such as EMS and Exoskeletons are promising ways to learn new physical skills and automate work, they completely remove the user's agency. Here, we explore how timing the haptic actuation allows users to feel more in control.
