Developing a novel haptic device for non-rigid computer graphic objects utilizing unmanned aerial vehicles
Department of Information Processing Systems Science, Graduate School of Engineering, SOKA University, Hachioji, Tokyo
In this paper, we propose a novel haptic device consisting of a Parrot quadcopter AR Drone 2.0 that delivers force-feedback to users when they press on the surface of the drone in the vertical direction. This drone haptic device will free users from any cumbersome devices which were utilized in previous haptics systems and allow them to sense kinesthetic feedback coming from the drone which in turn renders computer graphic objects, for example, a virtual box. Specifically, this system performs damped harmonic oscillation force motion on users’ hands and fingers. The oscillation function is implemented on the drone whenever users nudge the drone down. Overall, we evaluated the system with ten subjects, and results show the effectiveness of using damping oscillation motion to provide force-feedback delivered from the drone.
