  • Engineering Haptic Devicesby Springer

    Springer 2009; US$ 239.00

    Tactile perception and haptics are essential for us, as we gain information about structures and surface properties of physical objects by using the sense of touch. Haptics also enables us to manipulate the physical world. The emphasis of this book is put on technologies for artificially deceiving our haptic perception. First, examples and a definition... more...

  • Constructive Dialogue Modellingby Kristiina Jokinen

    Wiley 2009; US$ 120.00

    Dialogue management technology has developed rapidly over the years resulting in real-time applications like telephony directories, timetable enquiries, and in-car applications. However, the current technology is still largely based on models that use rigid command language type interactions, and the users need to adapt their human communication strategies... more...
