Calibration Method of Thermal-Radiation-Based Haptic Display
When a human places his hands over a source of heat, his hands become worm owing to thermal radiation. In this research, we employ spatially controlled thermal radiation to display a virtual shape. At a temperature near the nociceptive temperature, a person will tend to avoid a heated region. Using this space, our proposed system displays the virtual shape-like region. In this paper, we describe the proposed radiation system and calibration method, and evaluate displayed perception of the proposed method.
