    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. 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

  3. 3. Adhesion and Friction - a Study on Tactility

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Kenneth Duvefelt; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Adhesion; finger; friction; humidity; material; model; tactile friction; tactility; Machine Design; Maskinkonstruktion;

    Abstract : Although we are surrounded by hundreds of surfaces we can still distinguish them from each other simply by touch. The tactile information, interpreted by our brain and given by our fingers, is precise, but to put words to the sensation is very difficult — is it smooth, sticky or harsh? We do not only perceive surfaces differently, we also describe them in our own way. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Tactile Sensory Control of Dexterous Manipulation in Humans

    University dissertation from Umeå : Integrativ medicinsk biologi

    Author : Ingvars Birznieks; Umeå universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology; cutaneous sensibility; tactile afferents; fingertip force; grasp stability; human hand; manipulation; object shape; precision grip; sensorimotor control; coding; Fysiologi; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : During dexterous manipulation with the fingertips, forces are applied to objects' surfaces. To achieve grasp stability, these forces must be appropriate given the properties of the objects and the skin of the fingertips, and the nature of the task. READ MORE
