Abstract:


In recent years, several researches on haptic devices have been conducted. The haptic device provides the user with a sense of touching virtual objects such as computer graphics (CG) by tactile feedback. Since the user provides force feedback from a single point on the object surface touched by the user, the user contacts by point contact. However, since the person touches the surface instead of touching with the fingertip, it is impossible to provide a sense that a person touches the object with the fingertip. In our laboratory, we focused on this characteristic and developed a surface contact haptic device. In this research, we are proposing and implementing a force sense expression method safely against non-rigid bodies in previous research.
