  • Publication number: 20200352665
    Abstract: [Overview] [Problem to be Solved] To provide an information processing device that makes it possible to make a user feel less strange. [Solution] An information processing device including: a first acquisition unit that acquires a vibration signal measured by a vibration sensor included in a slave apparatus; a second acquisition unit that acquires a measurement result regarding distance between a target of sensing of the vibration sensor and a contact part of the slave apparatus; and a controller that outputs an output signal to a master apparatus. The contact part comes into contact with the target. The output signal is obtained by applying a weight to the vibration signal. The weight corresponds to the measurement result.

  • Patent number: 6990435
    Abstract: A system for detecting tactile information includes strain-gauge touch sensors and a controller. Based on the sum output from each of tough-sensor sensor units, an analyzer in the controller calculates touch force Fi(t) at each measurement point. An automatic gain control adjusts the voltage amplitude Ai(t) of a sine wave of frequency fi applied to the sensor units at each measurement point to bring the voltage amplitude measured at each measurement point in line with a target voltage. The adjusted voltage Ai(t) is applied to the bandpass filter with a composite sine wave y(t) which includes sine waves of each frequency corresponding to the adjusted voltage amplitude Ai(t). This makes it possible to reduce the number of lines between the controller and touch sensors that includes numerous measurement points, and enables the gain of the touch sensors constituted by strain gauges to be controlled within an appropriate range.
