In our current research we examine the integration of haptic interfaces into augmented reality setups. The ultimate target of these endeavours is the application of the framework to training of manipulative skills in surgical environments. To this end, highly accurate calibration, system stability, and low latency are indispensable prerequisites. Therefore, we developed a new calibration method to exactly align the haptic and world coordinate systems. Moreover, a distributed framework was created, which ensures low latency and component synchronization. Finally, to demonstrate our results, we integrated all elements into an augmented reality haptics ping-pong game.
