The secret behind Iris' magnetic force-feedback technology is the use of active magnetic fields to replicate a very wide variety of forces using software commands.
This technology fundamentally changes the way assets are controlled thus reducing power consumption and providing silent tactile operator force-feedback, all while drastically lowering costs, eliminating maintenance, and significantly reducing the risk of mechanical failure.
There is also evidence that the shape of the force-feedback function has a large influence on the "feel" and may therefore have consequences for the operation's efficiency and user satisfaction.
The participants, who felt the force functions by moving a force-feedback trackball, were asked to rank the force fields in order of satisfaction.
In the Education field the sense of touch and force-feedback
can offer great improvements to the existing teaching methods, thus enhancing the quality of education procedures.
JavaTherapy is a unilateral architecture realized with a commercial force-feedback
joystick connected to an orthopedic splint attached to the patient's wrist.
Burdea has been involved in haptic research for the past 15 years, after developing a force-feedback
glove at Rutgers.
Folks at Immersion Corp, San Jose, CA, have been demonstrating installations of their haptic force-feedback
technology in consumer cell phones.
devices provide the human operator with tactile cues, adding the sense of touch to existing visual and auditory interfaces.
of Amherst, N.Y., says that its Servo K-beam accelerometer Model 8330A2.5, an analog force-feedback
sensor, is well-suited for measurement of low-level acceleration in low-frequency or steady-state environments.
