W5: Affective Haptics as a Direct Link to Emotion
We discuss the new possibilities of Affective haptics based on the emerging needs and seeds. The link from haptics to brainstem is still an uncultivated area in science, but we are beginning to have tools to clarify it. Technological mental support and encouragement using the link are recent strong needs of people. In this workshop, top-tier researchers from medical to application fields are invited.
This workshop is supported by JST CREST Symbiotic Interaction.
