A remote-controlled system that transmits tactile sensations using RealHaptics has been developed by Motion Lib, Inc. (Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture; CEO: Takahiro Mizoguchi), Keio University Global Research Institute Haptics Research Center (Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture; Director: Toshiyuki Murakami), and Yokohama National University (Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture; President: Yuichi Hasebe). Using this system, PCR samples can be collected by medical workers without coming into close contact with subjects, and basic tests have already been conducted with doctors to verify the viability of the technology. Additionally, the development team confirmed that the system could replicate the motions of medical workers using the movement data collected.
