Investigation of tactile mechanism and a tactile sensor system

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper reports the investigation of tactile mechanism and a development of a tactile sensor system Details of the sense of roughness and hardness are investigated through several sensory tests and measurement experiments. The tactile motion operation of skilled and amateur are measured and the measurement data are compared to extract the difference. The tactile sensor system based with the characteristics of human finger motion and skin sensory receptors is succeeded in measuring human touch feelings.
