Abstract : Haptic interfaces are purposed for the simulation of physical interactions with a virtual environment in a realistic way. Their design is often based on a compromise between the interaction capabilities and mechanical design complexity. This paper is aimed at providing a methodology that helps tuning this trade-off. A survey of both manipulation and exploration taxonomies allows the identification of elementary hand contact areas with their associated frequency of use. The relative importance of these areas is illustrated by the building of an interaction map for the hand. Some combinations of these elementary areas, with their frequency of use, are then organised into a graphical tree as a function of their complexity. This tree allows to review some existing devices and to propose some guidelines for improved designs.
