  • Publication number: 20220161414
    Abstract: There is provided a control device including a control unit configured to control an operation offset that indicates a difference between a control reference point for a slave unit and a control reference point for a master unit on the basis of operation magnification indicating a ratio of a movement amount of the master unit to a movement amount of the slave unit, in which the control unit controls the operation offset for two pairs of master unit and slave unit according to a change in the operation magnification in a case where a designated position of a first pair of master unit and a slave unit of the two pairs of master units and the slave units is kept constant.

  • Publication number: 20220060678
    Abstract: Provided is a control device including a control unit that calculates a first positional relationship between an eye of an observer observing an object displayed on a display unit and a first point in a master-side three-dimensional coordinate system, and controls an imaging unit that images the object so that a second positional relationship between the imaging unit and a second point corresponding to the first point in a slave-side three-dimensional coordinate system corresponds to the first positional relationship.

  • Publication number: 20210402598
    Abstract: A robot device (10) acquires object information related to an object to be gripped by the robot device including a grip unit (32) that grips an object. The robot device (10) then determines, based on operation contents executed by the robot device with the object gripped and the object information, a constraint condition when the operation contents are executed.

  • Publication number: 20210008709
    Abstract: [Problem to be Solved] There are provided a control apparatus, a control method, and a master-slave system. [Solution] A control apparatus includes: a detector that detects whether or not a master apparatus used for an operation of a slave apparatus is located at a movable range limit; and a controller that controls, on the basis of a detection result, a slave parameter related to control of the slave apparatus and an image parameter related to an image displayed on the basis of imaging.

  • 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.

  • Publication number: 20200214779
    Abstract: A control device and a control method of a master-slave system and the master-slave system are provided. A control device, which controls an operation of a master-slave system, includes a control unit that applies, to a control system of the master-slave system, a restraint force corresponding to an operation in a desired translational or rotational direction by the master. The control unit applies, to the control system, the restraint force according to a difference between a current position or posture of the master and a reference value of a position or posture to be restrained. The control system controls the master-slave system, for example, by a bilateral control method or a unilateral control method.

  • Publication number: 20200100856
    Abstract: Provided is an information input apparatus capable of inputting rotation angles of three degrees of freedom. The information input apparatus includes: an outer shell section having a structure of a hollow sphere; a connection section attracting and rotatably supporting the outer shell section; and a rotation detection section configured to detect a rotation angle of the outer shell section. The rotation detection section includes at least one or a combination of two or more of an acceleration sensor, an angle sensor, and a magnetic sensor. The rotation detection section is arranged in a vicinity of a center of the sphere and configured to detect rotation angles of three degrees of freedom of the outer shell section. The outer shell section includes an opening section into which a finger of a user is inserted, and the rotation detection section is configured to detect the rotation angle when the outer shell section is manually operated by the inserted finger.
