Abstract-- Few systems have integrated the correct tactile
and kinesthetic force feedback response with an accurate
computational model of a compliant environment. We ex-
amine several design issues that arise in the construction
of a compliance render, specifically the interaction between
impedances of tactile displays, impedances of robot arms, and
the computational model. We also describe an implementation
of a compliance rendering system combining a low impedance
robot arm for large workspace kinesthetic force feedback, a
