    Abstract: An input device 1 includes a pressure-sensitive sensor 50 and a sensor controller 90. The sensor controller 90 includes an acquisition part 91 which obtains an actual output value of the pressure-sensitive sensor 50, a storage part 92 in which a correction function g(Vout) is stored, and a correction part 93 which substitutes the actual output value into the correction function g(Vout) so as to correct the actual output value for linearizing output characteristics of the pressure-sensitive sensor 50. The correction function g(Vout) is a function which is obtained by replacing an output variable Vout of the pressure-sensitive sensor 50 with a corrected output variable Vout? of the pressure-sensitive sensor 50 and also replacing an applied-load variable F to the pressure-sensitive sensor 50 with the output variable Vout in an inverse function f?1(F) of the output characteristic function f(F) of the pressure-sensitive sensor 50.
