As haptic devices become increasingly important in various product fields, it becomes essential to design effective vibration patterns for better tactile sensitivities. Despite this trend, standardization in the design of vibration patterns has not been well established, which causes developers to neglect the effects of haptics while programming or developing products. To provide better tactile sensitivity, the present study introduces a vibration pattern design system and proposes guidelines for designing vibration patterns. This system consists of two modules: (1) a graphical pattern design and evaluation program and (2) a vibro-tactile display device for prototyping the designed vibration patterns.
