  1. 1. Getting a Feel for Tactile Space Exploring Haptic Perception of Microtexture

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Psychology, Stockholm Univeristy

    Author : Martin Arvidsson; Stockholms universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Haptic; fine texture perception; multidimensional scaling; tactile; roughness; vibrations; spatial; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : The present thesis is based on three studies that research different aspects of fine texture perception. The goal is to better understand the mechanisms involved in haptic perception of textures below 200 µm, also known as microtextures. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Många av dagens stora folksjukdomar, såsom cancer, diabetes och hjärt-kärlsjukdomar, kopplas i allt högre grad samman med olika riskfaktorer som beror på förändringar i arvsmassan. Dessa nya kopplingar har möjliggjorts tack vare den extrema utveckling av genetiska mätmetoder som har skett under de senaste 15 åren. READ MORE

    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

  4. 4. Tactile Perception - Role of Physical Properties

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Lisa Skedung; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Finger Friction; Skin Friction; Paper Friction; Friction Coefficient; Piezoelectric Force Sensor; Skin Tribology; Biotribology; Soft Tribology; Surface Roughness; Profilometry; Coated Paper; Uncoated Paper; Printing Paper; Magazine Paper; Tactile Perception; Psychophysics; Multidimensional Scaling; Magnitude Estimation; Paper Coarseness; Thermal Conductivity; X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy.; MEDICINE Chemistry; MEDICIN Kemi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to interconnect human tactile perception with various physical properties of materials. Tactile perception necessitates contact and relative motion between the skin and the surfaces of interest. READ MORE
