Title
(EN) HYBRID HAPTIC DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF TACTILE HYBRIDE
Abstract
(EN)
System and method for a rotary control in a device that comprises a knob, a shaft supporting the knob and coupled to rotate therewith a base supporting the shaft. A sensor, operationally coupled to the base, is configured to detect an aspect of manipulation of the knob, which may include information relating to position, velocity, acceleration, torque, rate of rotation, time of rotation, or a combination thereof. A mechanical haptic assembly is operationally coupled between the base and the shaft to provide mechanical based haptic effects in response to movement of the knob with respect to the base. A programmable electronic-based actuator is operationally coupled to the knob and provides electronic-based haptic force feedback to the knob.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système et un procédé de contrôle rotatif dans un dispositif qui comprend un bouton, une tige qui porte le bouton et une base qui soutient la tige et qui est accouplée pour tourner avec le bouton. Un détecteur relié fonctionnellement à la base est configuré pour détecter un aspect de la manipulation du bouton, notamment des informations concernant la position, la vitesse, l'accélération, le couple, la vitesse de rotation, la durée de rotation ou une combinaison de ces paramètres. Un ensemble tactile mécanique est couplé fonctionnellement entre la base et la tige pour donner des effets tactiles à base mécanique en réponse au déplacement du bouton par rapport à la base. Un actionneur programmable à base électronique est couplé fonctionnellement au bouton et assure une rétroaction électronique de la force tactile avec le bouton.
