The Feasibility of Coin Motors for Use in a Vibrotactile Display for the Blind

Stronks, Christiaan; Parker, Daniel; Walker, Janine; Lieby, Paulette; Barnes, Nick


We have tested the potential of three types of vibration motors for use in a tactile vision substitution device for the blind. The motors were of the coin type, which are available off-the-shelf, and are characterized by their affordability, energy efficiency, and ease of implementation. The primary limitation of coin motors is the lack of control they offer over stimulus parameters. Specifically, adjusting the input voltage of a coin motor not only changes the vibration intensity, but also the...[Show more]
