  • Publication number: 20200126557
    Abstract: The present invention provides a speech intention expression system including a sensor part which is adjacent to one surface of the head and neck of a speaker and measures physical characteristics of articulators, a data interpretation part which grasps articulatory features of the speaker on the basis of the position of the sensor part and the physical characteristics of the articulators, a data conversion part which converts the position of the sensor part and the articulatory features to speech data, and a data expression part which expresses the speech data to the outside, wherein the sensor part includes an oral tongue sensor corresponding to the oral tongue.

  • Patent number: 10478286
    Abstract: An artificial vestibular organ system includes an artificial semicircular canal; a liquid filled in the artificial semicircular canal; artificial hair for sensing movement of liquid in the artificial semicircular canal; a signal conversion unit for converting an electrical or magnetic signal generated from the artificial hair into a body stimulation signal; a body stimulation pulse generation unit for transmitting the body stimulation pulse converted by the signal conversion unit to the ampulla; and a power unit. The artificial hair can be constituted in a pressure sensing manner or in a speed sensing manner for sensing the flow rate. The pressure sensing type can be formed of flex sensor, a piezoelectric sensor, or an FSR sensor, and the velocity sensing type can include rotary wings rotated according to the flow of the liquid or a speed measuring instrument for measuring the rotating speed of the rotary wings.
