Mobile haptic interface

Mobile Haptic Interface

Issues on mhi

Issues on MHI

- Precise and smooth MP tracking

- Reduction of force induced by MP motion

Haptic Interface (HI)

Local pose of HI

Force feedback

+ Force from MP

Mobile Platform (MP)

World pose of MP

MP motion

+ Tracking error

Mp tracking error

MP Tracking Error

  • IS-900 has poor tracking ability for dynamic objects in contrast with its quite good performance for static ones.

Tracking error along X and Z-axis(about ±20 mm in maximum)

Position (mm)

Trajectory of a tracker that israndomly moved along Y-axisby a linear lift.

Filter selection

Filter Selection

  • Low-pass filter: Noise freq. overlaps with that of signal.

  • Kalman filter: Difficult to choose the parameter values.

  • Moving Average: Filtering delay may affect the stability.

  • Moving average with variable window size: -> May reduce the noise effectively with small delay.

Adaptive moving average

Adaptive Moving Average

  • Proposed by Perry Kaufman (1998).

  • Exponential Moving Average (EMA).

    • yn = αxn + (1-α)yn-1= yn-1 + α(xn-yn-1),where, x: original signal, y: filtered signal, α: smoothing factor.

    • α = 2 / (w+1),where, w is window size.

Adaptive moving average1

Adaptive Moving Average

  • AMA adjusts α within a certain range, αmax and αmin, using following equations:

    • ERn = |xn – xn-t| / Σ|xi – xi-1|,where, t: test window size.

    • αn = ERn(αmax - αmin) + αmin.

  • Typically, AMA uses α2 instead of α to obtain more robust result against the noise.



Ama result

AMA Result

  • High frequency error is well removed.

  • Low frequency error is somewhat reduced but still exist.

  • Sensor fusion will be the key for further improvement.

Closed loop control

Closed-loop Control

  • In the previous research, we used the closed-loop force control to reduce the force from the MP dynamics.

  • In the closed-loop control, PID gain setting is crucial and search for the optimal values requires hard work.

  • If the starting point (i.e., near optimum) for the gains can be known, the labor may greatly reduced.

  • Ziegler and Nichols proposed an empirical method for the near-optimum gains values.

  • The method requires the maximum P-gain, ku, which drives the system stably oscillate, and the period of the oscillation, pu.

Relay feedback auto tuning

Relay Feedback Auto Tuning

  • Autonomous method to find kuand pu.

  • Induces the limit cycle oscillation using a relay feedback.

  • Relay feedback:

  • ku =

r(e) = h, if e < 0,

-h, otherwise.

r(e) = h, if e < 0,

-h, otherwise.

Problems of current mp

Problems of Current MP

  • Soft suspension: complex dynamics

  • Mecanum wheel: vibration, slip

  • Heavy weight: dull response

  • Complex dynamics can severely degrade the quality of force control.

New mp design under work

New MP Design (under work)

  • High rigidity: no moving parts

  • Smooth motion: advanced wheel

  • Light weight: simple structure

  • Low center-of-mass: thin base

New mp design under work1

New MP Design (under work)

  • Omni-Ball, designed by K. Tadakuma and R. Tadakuma, is adopted for more smooth motion.

Other changes

Other Changes

  • Side-by-side stereoscopic rendering

  • Additional distant cue using transparent sphere

  • (optional) Command vs. actual force graph for online evaluation.

  • stylus-type, 3-dof end effector with a button



  • Adaptive moving average

  • Auto PID gain tuning

  • Design of new MP & end effector

  • Visual enhancements
