Abstract
This paper develops an Intelligent Chair Tool (ICT) - a new chair-type human and machine interaction seating system powered by 36 intelligent pneumatic actuators. This tool can be used to facilitate investigation of chair shapes from spring and damping effects of seating and backrest surfaces. Each actuator used consists of five extensive elements of encoder, laser strip rod, pressure sensor, valves and PSoC microcontroller incorporated in a single device. By using the ICT, different shapes, spring and damping characteristics can be obtained to aid the design of chairs from the control inputs, i.e., position x, stiffness k(s) and viscous coefficient c. Several control algorithms are presented to realize the communication and control system, and to obtain all data in real-time. The control methodology presented contains an inner force loop and an outer position loop implemented using a unified control system. The specification, development design and experimental evaluation of the ICT control system and actuator used are presented and discussed.
