Six DOF Tactile Stimulator for Psychophysical Investigations

We have constructed a 6 axis tendon-driven high-fidelity force reflecting hand controller for use as a reference stimulator (with isotropic dynamic response) to evaluate human acuity to various motion stimuli in terms of wave form, amplitude and direction, see Figure gif. Some results have been obtained in terms of the human ability to distinguish and determine the nature of small amplitude motions sensed through the finger tips.
