Wearable Electrotactile Rendering System w/High Spacial resolution, Rapid Refresh


A new technical paper titled “Super-resolution wearable electrotactile rendering system” was published by researchers at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and Tencent Technology’s Robotics X Laboratory.

“Here, we present a wearable electrotactile rendering system that elicits tactile stimuli with both high spatial resolution (76 dots/cm2) and rapid refresh rates (4 kHz), because of a previously unexplored current-steering super-resolution stimulation technique,” states the paper.  Applications include VR shopping, gaming, metaverse, braille display, and teleperation.
