Abstract

Humans can perceive external forces applied on a grasping tool based on skin pressure distribution at multiple contact areas during grasp. We had tried to represent external forces and torques by controlling the skin pressure distributions using suction stimuli and confirmed the potential but in a heuristic manner. In this time, we improve the heuristic method by combining psychophysical experiments and mechanical simulation of skin deformations. Especially, we focus on a simplification method to represent the complex strain energy density (SED) distribution, which is associated with the activity of the mechanoreceptors, at the contact areas. As a result, the improved method can express the diagonal force in between a pair of the orthogonal axes. In this demonstrations, we prepare two types of demonstration to show the improved effect. The first is a passive type that expresses virtual external force applying to the multi-DoF direction in a virtual space. The second is an active type that expresses augmented force on the pen during physical interactions.
