Haptics is a relatively new research field concerned with the study and design of devices that exchange information via the sense of touch. Embedding haptic displays into today's powerful handheld devices many enhance the manipulation of data contained within these ever shrinking devices. To that end, research has been undertaken to study this regime of operation. Experiments have measured that subjects can perceive haptic effects amplitudes less than six milliNewtons. Early results suggested avenues of investigation into hand position and haptic effect profiles. This dissertation discusses research which expands upon earlier results in order to yield intelligent design and implementation specifications for an embedded haptic cell-phone dialing interface.
