Tactile codes and devices are widely used in virtual reality, robotics, and telemanipulation by blind and sighted people. Based upon the Braille code, we provide a rigorous analysis of tactile spatial codes, and propose a code that is improved in the information theoretical sense. Based upon the criterion of a minimum average code word weight, we derive a code that provides improved reliability and longer lifetime of tactile devices. Such an approach can be also employed for robot hands, and tactile feedback in virtual reality and dextrous telemanipulation.
