Abstract: This paper reports the preliminary results of the architectural design of the HAPTEX system that will be developed in the framework of the IST FET (Future and Emerging Technologies) initiative. The aim of the EU funded RTD project is to realize a virtual reality system able to render, visually and haptically, the behavior of fabrics. The integration of force-feedback devices with tactile arrays is foreseen to reproduce both kinesthetic and tactile stimulations. A multilayer-multithread architecture has been selected in order to optimize the computational speed and to achieve a sufficient refresh rate for real-time applications.
