This document describes the hardware developed to realize a shape memory alloy SMA tactile stimulator. A 5x6 30 element array has been developed to provide tactile stimulation to the human operator of a remotely controlled robotic system. The work verifies that a tactile stimulator can be packaged in finger-pad size arrays and that computer control is feasible. Actuation profiles and design techniques are discussed.
