Innovations utilizing Haptic technology

haptics technology, haptic technology examples, haptic technology ppt, “Haptics”- The ability to see, hear, or become aware of something that result from any form of interaction involving touch or the sense of touch. With the aim to recreate the sense of touch via a haptic device, haptic technology has opened up a myriad of possibilities from vibrating cell phones that alert you to an incoming message or call, to smart watches, wristbands, virtual reality training simulators, implantable devices that produce feedback and even in robotic surgeries.

Haptic devices incorporate microcontrollers, drivers, actuators or motors, as well as software for multimodal experiences that improve the usability by engaging touch, sound and sight. Haptics is widely becoming a tool used in a variety of applications they can be found in virtual reality applications to give a greater sense of realism or create a 3D environment. The haptic technology has been found in smartphones and computer and video games for many years but the innovations utilizing haptic technology is now integrating haptic technology into healthcare, transportation, robotics etc.

Title: METHOD AND DEVICE TO CONTROL VEHICLE BEHAVIOUR

Assignee: Barelli, Giuseppe (Via Baldanzese 127/b, 50041 Calenzano (FI), IT)

Publication Date: 13 Dec 2017

Abstract:

This abstract is provided to introduce a selection of concepts in a simplified form that are further described below in the Detailed System Description section. The abstract is not intended to identify key features of the claimed subject matter. Disclosed in this paper is a vehicle performance control device conceived to autonomously determine a safe, economic and eco-sustainable driving behaviour to reduce the mechanical stress, the wear and the maintenance cost of vehicles. The invention provides a vehicle performance control device arranged between the vehicle’s Pedal Interface (PI) including the cruise control, the speed limitation and the speed control systems, or a combination of these, and the vehicle’s Electronic Control Unit (ECU). The control device autonomously and dynamically acts on the functional status of the cruise control, the speed limitation or the speed control system to modulate the vehicle’s performance. The performance is tuned depending on the current vehicle’s position, speed, acceleration, inclination and pose respect to the ground. For example, the vehicle’s max speed can be limited in specific geographic areas or during specific time intervals when the driver is supposed to drive improperly, excessively were off the vehicle, or parts of it, or stress the mechanics. The performance limitation can be turned off manually by the drivers for safety reasons, remotely by fleet’s managers or fleet’s management systems , or automatically by the system whenever the context requires the entire engine power to get the vehicle working properly. For example the engine performance will be not limited if the vehicle gets in an uphill over a certain inclination threshold to avoid stops due to torque outages. The control device embeds a communication unit able to connect to the internet, exchange data with personal computers, diagnostic tools or personal devices such as smartphones and tablets. The control device provides all the useful information for the estimation of the vehicle’s status, the driver’s behaviours and the induced mechanical stress and wear off. The communication unit is intended to exchange data for the monitoring of the vehicle’s status, its performance and for the tuning of the control unit’s strategy. The communication can be automatically scheduled by the system itself, attempted by the remote fleet’s managers or the fleet’s management systems, or performed by humans operators or the connected remote devices on requests. A human machine interface provides visual, acoustic or haptic feedbacks, or a combination of these, to the driver on the status of the control device, the estimated level of wear or mechanical stress induced on the vehicle or part of the vehicle, the drive safety, efficiency and the eco-sustainability.
