Abstract

The paper studies two methods of haptic. One is an attraction force display that can induce attraction force by a cyclic movement of a weight with asymmetric acceleration. Another is a texture display that induces a sensation of texture by giving off vibration while a subject traces a finger over a flat surface. In this paper, we propose a novel design that can induce both attraction force and texture feeling. The prototype consists of four vibration motors, which are controlled to generate asymmetric acceleration and vibration. The device is evaluated by experiments.
