    Abstract : Tactile perception is considered an important contributor to the overall consumer experience of a product. However, what physical properties that create the specifics of tactile perception, are still not completely understood. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interactive Perception From Scenes to Objects

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Niklas Bergström; KTH.; KTH.; [2012]

    Abstract : This thesis builds on the observation that robots, like humans, do not have enough experience to handle all situations from the start. Therefore they need tools to cope with new situations, unknown scenes and unknown objects. In particular, this thesis addresses objects. READ MORE

  3. 3. Safety as a process : From risk perception to safety activity

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Christina Stave; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2005]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; V Medicine; V Medicine; Oha Labour and labour market; Oha Labour and labour market; Accident prevention; Occupation; Risk; Perception; Safety; Food; Industry; Övrig samhällsvetenskap; Other social sciences; Keywords: occupational injury; safety behaviour; accident; intervention; risk perception.;

    Abstract : The frequency of occupational accidents in the Swedish food industry and agriculture is high. This thesis has therefore explored the 'process of safety' in order to detect and analyse factors that either hinder or facilitate safety activity and to further develop intervention methods towards increased safety activity.

  4. 4. Perception of rolling noise

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Alice Hoffmann; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Psychoacoustics; Auralization; Perception; Tyre Road Noise; Rolling Noise;

    Abstract : Due to improvements on combustion-engines and electric-engines for cars, tyre noise has become the prominent noise source at low and medium speeds. Models exist that simulate the noise produced by a rolling tyre, as do models that auralize different traffic situations from a basic data set. READ MORE

  5. 5. Perception of disturbing sounds : Investigations of people with hearing loss and normal hearing

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Åsa Skagerstrand; Örebro universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; perception; annoyance; loudness; hearing loss; Handikappvetenskap; Disability Science;

    Abstract : The present thesis concerns the daily sound environment and the human perception of the same. The sound environment affects the possibility to be active in a communication. With background noise, it may be harder to hear desired signals, and when suffering from a hearing loss, negative effects of the background noise increase. READ MORE
