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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Psychology, Stockholm Univeristy

    Author : Martin Arvidsson; Birgitta Berglund; Steven Hsiao; [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

  3. 3. Tactile Perception - Role of Physical Properties

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Lisa Skedung; Mark Rutland; Katrin Danerlöv; Sören Andersson; Ann Maria Cornell; [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

  4. 4. Towards a tactile artifical hand

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Ulrika Wijk; [2020]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; amputation; upper limb; phantom hand map; sensory feedback; referred sensation; hand prosthesis; body ownership; tactile sensation;

    Abstract : Amputation of a hand is a life-changing event, and the loss of motor and sensory functions leads to disability and has devastating effects on the individual. What is normally performed using two hands must be solved with only one, and the loss also affects body balance and body posture. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sensing the environment development of monitoring aids for persons with profound deafness or deafblindness

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Parivash Ranjbar; Dag Stranneby; Erik Borg; Charlotte M. Reed; [2009]
