Abstract

A virtual button with tactile feedback is realized by use of ultrasonic vibration with amplitude of a few micrometers. Button-like click feeling is displayed by recreating rapid change in reaction force arising from buckling of a mechanical push button utilizing squeeze film effect. First, click feeling display system was constructed based on the principle of perceiving click feeling when pushing a mechanical button. In the system, stimulation are applied to the operators at both buckling and restitution point. Then, by conducting several sensory evaluation experiments, the optimum parameters of the ultrasonic vibration was determined to display button-like click feeling. Finally, by conducting usability test, it was verified that the usability of the virtual button was equivalent to that of a mechanical button.
