Abstract

In this study, we developed vibrotactile display methods that can assist designers in product design. In order to achieve realistic sensations required for such designing purposes, we used real materials such as cloth, paper, wood, and leather and applied vibrotactile stimuli to modify the roughness sensations of these materials. This approach allowed us to present textures of various virtual materials with a strong sense of reality. We verified that our proposed methods could selectively modify the fine and macro-roughness sensations of real materials. The methods are expected to aid product designers in deciding tactile sensations suitable for their products.
