Visual and haptic feedbacks are two important pathways for building movement coordination. In the case where visual feedback is restricted or limited, people need to learn motor skills through haptic feedback. We developed an experiment under five different scenarios in which subjects require to duplicate motor trajectories from haptic feedback only. The subjects were evaluated by the accuracy in their trajectories and replication after being guided over 6 trials. We plan to investigate the role of haptic feedback in creating motor coordination, and we expect that haptic guidance can be used as a tool for learning simple motor tasks that may be used for teaching skills required for teleoperation, such as in surgery
