2自由度力覚提示装置による間接力覚提示(<特集>ハプティックコンテンツ) Feasibility Study on Indirect Haptic Feedback with 2 DOF Haptic Interface(<Special Issue>Haptic Contents)
This paper describes a development of indirect force feedback system, which consists of a mouse pointer, and a 2-degree of freedom (DOF) pantograph haptic interface. The 2DOF interface consists of four-bar linkage, mouse sensor to the pointing, and computer graphics image display. The interface can display only vertical force to a user's hand. This interface separates the pointing area, which is at the fingertip, from force feedback area, which is on the ball of the thumb of the user, even though they are on one point in ordinary haptic interface. It was verified that users could feel as if they were touching virtual objects through an evaluation test.
