Abstract

Haptics technology has received enormous attention to enhance human computer interaction. Indeed haptics offers a natural user interface based on human gesture system. In this paper, we present a prototype haptic-enabled UML CASE tool that allows software engineering developers to intuitively interact and touch the modeling elements of the tool and feel the force feedback. The tool uses the Omni Phantom device, a common single-point of interaction haptic device. We performed a usability study to compare the haptic-based approach against the traditional mousebased approach. Even though some users expressed the tiresome of using the haptic device, the study demonstrated the potential of incorporating the haptic modality in UML development tools in terms of user involvement, socialism, and motivation.
