VibViz: Vibrotactile Effect Visualization and Customization

Start Year: 

The goal of this project is to empower ordinary users, without any design background, to personalize vibration notifications for their own preference and utilitarian needs. The project is composed of four components:

1) Simple personalization tools for end-users and their chracteristics,

2) Acess to large vibration libraries by means of visualizing vibrations and four descriptive facets (VibViz),

3) Vibration facets and their substructure and linkages

4) Stylizing or tuning filters (slider) for vibrations
