Abstract: A continuous stroking sensation on the skin can convey messages or emotion cues to individuals. We seek to induce this sensation using a combination of illusory motion and lateral stroking in a single device. We present a device that provides discrete lateral skin-slip on the forearm by actuating five separate tactors, which independently provide lateral skin-slip in a timed sequence to induce a stroking sensation. We validated the device design and optimized the actuation parameters for pleasantness and continuity through a user study with 16 participants.
