Abstract

In this paper we discuss the control and spatiotemporal pattern specification for a high density tactile display. The display consists of a configuration of 400 probes applying approximately normal forces to the contact surface. Except for horizontal skin stretch, the device is designed to be capable of simulating most psychophysically and physiologically relevant spatiotemporal patterns. It also is capable of providing a high resolution test-bed for tactile rendering algorithms for haptic interfaces.
