Appropriate instructions and augmented feedback facilitate acquisition and perfection of motor tasks in sports. To distribute perceptual and cognitive workload, these cues should address all modalities. Thus, we design and evaluate unimodal (visual, auditory, haptic) as well as multimodal instructions and feedback strategies, and develop robots providing the required haptic interaction.


Own developments in the field of haptic interaction and of user-cooperative control are embedded in virtual scenarios, see Setup. Currently, the potential of concurrent, multimodal feedback strategies to enhance complex motor learning is explored in rowing and tennis. Furthermore, a virtual trainer is developed that automatically adapts instructions and feedback according to the actual performance.
