As with any haptic application development, issues of performance are often the subject of discussion (or contention) after design is already completed. Evaluating haptic-based applications have largely focused on a combination of qualitative and quantitative analysis of kinesthetic feedback, repeatability of haptic task responses and/or the correlation of visualization software and haptic rendering, to name but a few. However, while there are ISO guidelines to evaluate the ergonomics of human system interaction, particularly in the area of usability, there is little resource in way of code diagnostics of haptic application architectures. This paper proposes a methodology of profiling for haptic applications as a measure of operational criteria. It is hoped that the findings and suggestions made can further advance the evaluation and development of more robust haptic systems.
