Abstract

A future system for flexible manufacturing must be a sensor-complex for multi-modality with high intelligence, since such system should work with human who has a variety of expression ways and acceptance channels. This paper describes three topics from our recent researches on gesture and haptic interfaces which can be introduced for human-friendly interface in designer-consumer cooperative production system. The first one is a gesture information acquisition method by using image processing technique. The second one is another gesture recognition system by employing accelerometers to measure the forces applied to the body. A new haptic-communication device is introduced as the third topic of the paper. It is able not only to detect grasping force and the device orientation, but also to display the tactile sensation using the vibration motors to realize human-machine and human-human haptic communications.
