ABSTRACT: For designing a simple and more realistic haptic feedback system, we propose integrating an underactuated mechanism with one-point kinesthetic feedback from the arm with multipoint tactile feedback. By focusing on the division of roles between the cutaneous sensation in fingers and the proprioception in the arm. We have implemented a prototype system that provides kinesthetic feedback to the arm and tactile feedback to the fingers, examined the difference of weight recognition according to the applied point of kinesthetic feedback, and confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed method.Haptics Symposium, 2010 IEEE; 04/2010
Conference Paper: Development of aerial-input and aerial-tactile-feedback system[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: A system is proposed which enables users not only to operate computers by moving their hands in mid-air but also to feel touch feedback on their hands. The system consists of a PC, a markerless hand-tracker for input, and a non-contact tactile display for feedback. The tactile display utilizes ultrasound to produce tactile stimulation from a distance. It is based on a nonlinear phenomenon of ultrasound (acoustic radiation pressure) and the phased array focusing technique. The principles are described and the prototype system is introduced.World Haptics Conference (WHC), 2011 IEEE; 07/2011

ABSTRACT: This paper describes a tactile display which provides unrestricted tactile feedback in air without any mechanical contact. It controls ultrasound and produces a stress field in a 3D space. The principle is based on a nonlinear phenomenon of ultrasound: Acoustic radiation pressure. The fabricated prototype consists of 324 airborne ultrasound transducers, and the phase and intensity of each transducer are controlled individually to generate a focal point. The DC output force at the focal point is 16 mN and the diameter of the focal point is 20 mm. The prototype produces vibrations up to 1 kHz. An interaction system including the prototype is also introduced, which enables users to see and touch virtual objects.IEEE Transactions on Haptics 01/2010; 3:155-165. · 1.39 Impact Factor
