In science:

Personal Memex can use various methods such as vibrations, haptic or tactile outputs, electronic signals, audio playback, and visual displays.
Human Information Processing with the Personal Memex
The different forms of feedback employed were auditory, haptic and visual.
Human Information Processing with the Personal Memex
The researchers tested auditory, haptic, and visual feedback to assess their affect on user workload, accuracy, and performance time.
Human Information Processing with the Personal Memex
Help the actor perform its movement : due to the lack of haptic sensations, the actor may have trouble to achieve given movements.
Balanced Virtual Humans Interacting with their Environment
Imagine a worker drilling a hole, in the real world, he is guided by the haptic sensation of the drill in the material (let's say wood).
Balanced Virtual Humans Interacting with their Environment
When no haptic feedback is available, we can use virtual guides to help him.
Balanced Virtual Humans Interacting with their Environment
This architecture was used to guide a camera in space (hence its name agile eye) or haptic device .
The eel-like robot
Although different modalities of perception (e.g. laser range-finder, color camera, haptics) can be used, in this work we focus on passive vision, as it is interesting for several reasons, like an affordable cost, compatibility with human environments or richness of perceived information.
Evaluation of Three Vision Based Object Perception Methods for a Mobile Robot
There are different concepts for interactive maps, some with auditory only, some with auditory and haptic feedback. An auditory map was proposed by Jacobson . The user navigates in a model of the environment with a touchpad and receives auditory feedback.
