Abstract:

This report documents the design and construction of a computer interface used to drive a head-mounted tactile display. Components of the interface include the tactor, the voltage driver, the controller, and the excitation signal, and each is discussed in detail. The procedures used to qualify and quantify tactor performance and excitation signal selection and generation are also discussed. This work is part of a larger effort to evaluate the synergistic use of a bone conduction communication system and a tactile communication system.
