Application: Control device, synchronization system, and machine control method (Patent ID: US20230418265A1)

The patent filed by Mitsubishi Electric Corp. describes a control device connected to a synchronization device that synchronizes operation data and measurement data obtained from a machine. The control device includes user command generation, synchronization command storage, synchronization command generation, and synchronization command output units. These components work together to generate user commands for driving the machine, store reproduction information for synchronization commands, generate synchronization commands based on this information, and output the synchronization commands to an oscillation device at predetermined timings to add an effect to the measurement data.

The claims associated with the patent detail the structure and functionality of the control device, including the generation of user commands, synchronization commands, and the addition of synchronization effects to sound or vibration generated by the machine. The patent also covers the use of random number generation to determine the characteristics of the sound or vibration produced by the synchronization command. Additionally, the patent includes a synchronization system comprising the control device and the synchronization device, as well as a machine control method that outlines the steps involved in generating and outputting synchronization commands. Overall, the patent focuses on enhancing the control and synchronization of machine operations through the manipulation of sound and vibration effects.
