Electrostatic attraction may be used to modulate the apparent friction coefficient between two surfaces. Applied to the human finger and a polarized interface, the principle can modify the user perception of the interface surface. In this paper, the different steps towards the modeling of the electrovibration phenomenon are developed. An investigation on the current modeling will be carried out, with a focus on the temporal evolution and frequency dependence of the stimulus. Thus, an improvement of the modeling will be proposed to take into account this major effect, and then, it will be checked with an experimental set-up and compared with literature results.
