Student Design And Development Of A Tactile Display With Three Dimensional Movements
Additional Document Info
This paper describes a senior-level class project in which two Electronics Engineering Technology undergraduates designed and implemented a novel tactile display. The display consists of four pins, each attached to a platform moved by three servos. The twelve servos are controlled by a commercial servo controller using software developed in the Python programming language. This project provided the students with experience investigating currently available systems in a rapidly expanding field, proposing electro-mechanical designs, evaluating the proposed designs, constructing a functioning prototype of the chosen design, and documenting the process. Guidance and evaluation throughout the project were provided by the course instructor and a technical expert. American Society for Engineering Education, 2009.
