    Slip-compensated odometry for tracked vehicle on loose and weak slope

    Odometry is widely used to localize wheeled and tracked vehicles because of its simplicity and continuity. Odometric calculations integrate the wheel or track’s rotation speed. The accuracy of position thus ca...

    Development of an implicit method for directing weight shifting to the affected side in patients with stroke: a proof of concept study

    Weight-shift training during stroke rehabilitation requires patient effort, potentially causing leg spasticity and anxiety, which disturb motor learning. The purpose of this study was (1) to devise an implicit...

    Friction perception resulting from laterally vibrotactile stimuli

    When a human rubs a contactor that is vibrating laterally at 3–10 Hz with an amplitude of ~1 mm, the friction is perceived as being greater than that sensed when touching a stationary contactor. This phenomeno...
