Abstract:Human computer interaction (HCI) studies a human being and a computer at the same time. Within an HCI system, a graphical user interface (GUI) as software and input and output (I/O) hardware must be matched. Common sensory channels that can be used to provide feedback to the user include visual, auditory and haptic feedback. An HCI system with haptic feedback is promising and worth studying. In this thesis, we presented how such a system was built from scratch. Three layers were discussed in detail which included software, application programming interface (API) and hardware. Then, two case studies were provided to illustrate the creation process. One was a 2D Tower of London game and the other was a 3D Drag-and-Drop game. They both showed how to use APIs to create software applications. And in the first case study, integration of vibrotactile feedback was documented. This thesis serves as documentation of an HCI system with haptic feedback. It is beneficial to the further development of the system.
