Abstract:

FOR A MULTIPOINT TACTILE ARRAY SYSTEM, TWO ACTUATOR DESIGNS ARE PROPOSED: A MAGNETIC AND A PVDF DESIGN. THE MAGNETIC DESIGN IS BEST SUITED FOR PIN-TO-PIN SPACING OF 3 MM AND LARGER. PIN TRAVEL AMPLITUDE OF 2 MM (AND LONGER IF NEEDED)CAN BE READILY IMPLEMENTED, AND TYPICAL FREQUENCY RESPONSE IS ADEQUATE FOR THE OPTIMAL 250 HZ FRAME-RATE PRESENTATION. FLOATING PIN SUSPENSION ALLOWS THE PINS TO AUTOMATICALLY CONFORM TO SKIN CURVATURE. ACTUATORS CAN BE COMBINED INTO MODULES, AND A TYPICAL MODULE CONSISTS OF 8 X 8 ACTUATORS. THE SMALL AND LIGHT ARRAY MODULE IS CONNECTED THROUGH A FLEXIBLE 16-CONDUCTOR CABLE TO A CONTROL UNIT.
