电振双模多维触觉刺激器 Dual-mode electric vibrator dimensional tactile stimulator

技术领域 Technical Field

[0001] 本发明涉及一种触觉刺激器,属于信息显示技术领域。 [0001] The present invention relates to a tactile stimulation, information pertaining to the field of display technology.

背景技术 Background

[0002] 人们日常生活中涉及的显示器很多,但多为视觉显示器,如电视机屏、中央处理器显示器、投影仪、户外电子广告屏等等。 Display [0002] people's daily life involves a lot, but mostly a visual display, such as a television screen, the central processor monitors, projectors, outdoor electronic advertising screens and so on. 视觉显示器是以视觉方式让眼睛感知图像和文字信息的电子信息装置,其特点在于作用于眼睛的刺激媒介为光。 The visual display is a visual way to let the eye perceive electronic information device image and text information, which is characterized in that the role of the media in light eye irritation.

[0003] 触觉显示器与视觉显示器类似,是以物理刺激方式作用于皮肤表面,让人以触觉方式感知图文信息的一种电子信息装置。 [0003] The touch display is similar to the visual display, physical stimulation is applied to the skin surface, in a tactile way people perceive an electronic information device graphic information. 两者的不同之处在于触觉显示器是让皮肤而不是眼睛“看”到图像和文字,触觉显示器的刺激媒介为可引起皮肤感觉的物理刺激。 The difference between the two is that the haptic display is to allow the skin instead of eyes "see" the images and text, tactile stimuli display media can cause physical stimulus to the skin feel.

[0004] 能够引起皮肤感觉的物理刺激方式较多,从触觉技术的发展历程来看,气动刺激是最早采用的物理刺激手段,其次是振动刺激、电刺激和神经肌肉刺激等,近年来,人们又发展了顶针刺激、电流变液、磁流变液、热刺激和表面声波等相关刺激手段,2006年,东南大学研究人员在长期积累的基础上首次提出了射流刺激这一新型触觉显示技术,为触觉显示技术的发展做出了贡献。 [0004] can cause skin irritation feeling more physical way, from the development process point of view haptic technology, pneumatic stimulus is a physical stimulus earliest use, followed by vibration stimulation, electrical stimulation and neuromuscular stimulation, in recent years, people and the development of related incentives thimble stimulation, ER fluids, fluids, thermal stimulation, and surface acoustic wave and so on, in 2006, Southeast University researchers on the basis of long-term accumulation of the first proposed jet stimulate this new tactile display technology, for the tactile display technology make a contribution.

[0005] 虽然触觉显示的物理刺激手段已经发展了多种方法,但就实际应用效果来看,大多难以尽如人意。 [0005] Although the physical stimulus tactile display a variety of methods have been developed, but in practical application, the most difficult satisfactory. 就几种主要的刺激方法而言,电触觉刺激器是将电脉冲施加到用户指端的微小电极上。 On several major stimulation, the electrical tactile stimulation electrical pulses are applied to the microelectrode user's finger. 电触觉是一种通过流过表层电极的电流刺激皮肤内神经纤维的触觉再现装置,能够在没有机械激励的情况下产生压力或振动感觉,电触觉具有体积小,重量轻,成本低廉,易于和中央处理器连接等优点,但不足之处在于皮肤接触阻抗不稳定,动态范围较窄,易引起电刺痛等不舒服的感觉,其最佳刺激位置是舌头,但由于舌头是发声和进食的重要器官,而且由于放置在口腔内,对装置的卫生和防潮、防盐蚀等要求也较高,因而通常仅限于实验研究,实际场合很少使用;振动触觉刺激使用钝针、音圈或压电晶体等产生振动, 是一种相对简单有效的触觉刺激方式,振动触觉刺激器具有成本低廉、体积小、使用方便并具有高带宽等优点,但在高频时易引起噪声和发热;射流触觉是指利用以一定速度喷射出的水流施加在操作者指端的皮肤表面,以形成一定强度的压力斜坡,同时由于水流可以带走一定的热量,又可以在指端接触处形成一定的温度斜坡,两种因素交互作用,在操作者指端形成清晰的压力温度融合触觉感受。 Tactile is an electric current flowing through surface electrodes to stimulate nerve fibers in the skin of haptic devices, capable of generating pressure or vibration perception in the absence of a mechanical excitation, the electric touch with small size, light weight and low cost, easy and advantages of the central processor connections, but the downside is that skin contact resistance unstable, dynamic range is narrow, can lead to uncomfortable electrical tingling feeling, the best position is to stimulate the tongue, but the tongue and vocal eating vital organs, and because placing in the mouth, health and moisture-proof devices, anti-salt corrosion and other requirements are also higher, thus often limited to experimental studies, the actual situation is rarely used; vibrotactile stimulation using a blunt needle, coil or pressure electric crystals vibrate, it is a relatively simple and effective tactile stimulation, vibrotactile stimulator with low cost, small size, easy to use and has a high-bandwidth, etc., but at higher frequencies can lead to noise and heat; jets touch refers to the use of a constant flow rate of injected operator is applied to the skin surface of the finger to a certain intensity of pressure slope, and because the water can take away a certain amount of heat, and can be formed at a certain temperature ramp finger contact points, the interaction of two factors, the operator fingertip pressure and temperature to form a clear fusion of tactile sensations. 射流触觉的优点在于不仅可以通过射流点阵提供触觉图文显示,还可以实现热图像的显示,在建立温度色彩映射关系后还可以实现其他技术手段难以提供的彩色图文触觉显示。 Jet tactile advantage lies not only through the jet dot matrix graphic display providing tactile, you can achieve a thermal image display, after establishing the relationship between the temperature of the color map can also be achieved other technical means of color graphics touch display is difficult to provide. 实际应用中,还可以在流速稳定的水流柱给予一定强度的低频耦合振动处理,以引起皮肤表面压强瞬时变化,从而有效降低操作者的触觉时间适应性。 Practical applications, the flow rate may also be administered in a stable low-flow column coupled vibration of a certain intensity, so as to cause the skin surface instantaneous pressure changes, thus effectively reducing the operator's tactile adaptation time. 水射流具有较高的带宽,且不会导致不舒服感觉,易于为操作者所接受,不足之处在于装置较为复杂,体积偏大,目前研究人员正在进行装置微型化的研究。 Water jet with high bandwidth without causing uncomfortable feeling, easy to be accepted for the operator, the downside is that the system is more complex, the volume is too large, the current researchers are miniaturized research facility.

[0006] 触觉技术涵盖了大量内容,新型刺激器原理、刺激器参数、刺激器干扰,触觉刺激器与其他感觉通道的交互作用、触觉通讯时延及彩色触觉等均是需要进一步深入研究的课题。 [0006] The haptic technology covers a lot of content, the new stimulator principle stimulator parameters stimulator interference, the interaction with the other senses tactile stimulation channels, tactile communication delays and color touch so is the need for further in-depth study of the topic . 其中,最基本也是最为重要的研究工作即是触觉刺激的技术手段和方法研究,现有触觉刺激器为电刺激、气动刺激或振动刺激等单一模式的触觉刺激,其触觉刺激表达的信息有限,不具备较好的实用价值。 Among them, the most basic and the most important work that is research techniques and methods of tactile stimulation, the existing tactile stimulation device as electrical stimulation, tactile stimulation pneumatic stimulation or single mode of vibration stimulation, tactile stimulation information which expression is limited, do not have good practical value.
