Abstract

This paper presents an experiment by using haptic interface for Chinese handwriting learning. Based on the strategy of “record-and-play”, this haptic interface records the teacher’s information and transfers the writing skill to users. There are two kinds of transfer methods. One is using the real speed that recorded from the teacher, called variable velocity mode. The other is using a constant speed which is re-programmed, called constant velocity mode. The objective of this experiment is to determine what kind of velocity mode benefits the handwriting learning most. Also, another purpose is to see if use of haptic device in learning a given Chinese character could influence learning of other characters with common strokes. The result shows that haptic device does benefit handwriting learning. In order to improve shape or decrease inair time, c-v mode (constant velocity mode first and variable velocity mode second) shows statistical significance and increases performance; separately, constant velocity mode gets better improvement than variable velocity mode with haptic learning. For writing velocity or size, no significant effect can be made. Using haptic device to learn a given Chinese character nearly cannot influence learning of other characters with common strokes.
