Tactile sensing is of utmost importance in applications like biomedical, robotics in general and bio-robotics in particular. It is important in view of the rich interaction behaviours exhibited by real world objects e.g. how hard or soft is the object, how its surface feels when touched, how it deforms on contact and how it moves when pushed etc. Touch information plays a fundamental role in the safe interaction of any artificial device with the environment i.e. without causing any harm to the objects with which it is interacting. This work presents a novel method of developing touch sensing arrays which have been designed for robotics applications and their utility can be easily extended to biomedical instruments as well.

Abstract

Tactile sensing is of utmost importance in applications like biomedical, robotics in general and bio-robotics in particular. It is important in view of the rich interaction behaviours exhibited by real world objects e.g. how hard or soft is the object, how its surface feels when touched, how it deforms on contact and how it moves when pushed etc. Touch information plays a fundamental role in the safe interaction of any artificial device with the environment i.e. without causing any harm to the objects with which it is interacting. This work presents a novel method of developing touch sensing arrays which have been designed for robotics applications and their utility can be easily extended to biomedical instruments as well.
