Control for Resonant Microbeam Vibrotactile Haptic Displays


Abstract The world’s population is currently 9% visually impaired. Medical sciences do not have a biological fix that can cure this visual impairment. Visually impaired people are currently being assisted with biological fixes or assistive devices. The current assistive devices are limited in size as well as resolution. This thesis presents the development and experimental validation of a control system for a new vibrotactile haptic display that is currently in development. In order to allow the vibrotactile haptic display to be used to represent motion, the control system must be able to change the image displayed at a rate of at least 30 frames/second. In order to achieve this, this thesis introduces and investigates the use of three improvements:... (more)
