Additional Information

This authoring tool supports the creation of vibration patterns through finger tapping on a touch screen. Duration of a touch is mapped to the duration of a vibration while touch area is mapped to intensity. Touch area is expected to be proportional to pressure. A visualization of the vibrotactile pattern is previewed to users during use, but this pattern must be transferred to a separate computer to drive an attached actuator.
