A current interdisciplinary research project focuses on the development of application-oriented principles for tools for the multimodal, in particular tactile, inspection of textile surfaces for communication systems. For this purpose, product actuators have been created to scan the virtual surface and to capture the "frequency image" of the surface structure, so that a haptic perception can be simulated and tactile properties can be derived from it by stimulation of the sensory organs. To improve perception, these data are extended by auditory and visual modalities to achieve a multimodal description of product surfaces. The parameters are combined to a compressed representation of the information and converted by tactile actuators. Another focus are the development and selection of suitable techniques for the reproduction of tactile properties of surfaces. In addition, it is important to ensure the synchronization of the displayed modalities during transmission. For this purpose, requirements are determined which result from the selected HMI devices on the user side and the achieved project results for the product interface.
