Abstract: With the introduction of new specialized hardware, Virtual Reality (VR) has gained more and more popularity in recent years. VR is particularly immersive if suitable auditory and haptic feedback is provided to users. Many proposed forms of haptic feedback require custom hardware components that are often bulky, costly, and/or require lengthy setup times. We explored the possibility of using the built-in vibrotactile feedback of HTC Vive controllers to simulate the sensation of interacting with surfaces with varying degrees of roughness. We conducted initial testing on the proposed system, which shows promising results as users could accurately and within short time discern the amount of roughness of 3D models based on the vibrotactile feedback alone.
