    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; 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

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Adaptive Grasping Using Tactile Sensing

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Emil Hyttinen; KTH.; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Robotics; Grasping; Tactile Sensing; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : Grasping novel objects is challenging because of incomplete object data and because of uncertainties inherent in real world applications. To robustly perform grasps on previously unseen objects, feedback from touch is essential. In our research, we study how information from touch sensors can be used to improve grasping novel objects.

  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; Örebro universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Auditive identification; Deaf; Deafblind; Directional perception; Environmental sound; Filtering; Frequency transposing; Hearing aid; Hearing impairment; Modulating; Monitoring; Tactile perception; Vibratory aid; Vibratory identification; TECHNOLOGY Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics Electronics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik Elektronik; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Elektronik; Electronics;

    Abstract : Earlier studies of persons with deafness (D) and/or deafblindness (DB) have primarily focused on the mobility and communication problems. The purpose of the present study was to develop technology for monitoring aids to improve the ability of persons with D and/or DB to detect, identify, and perceive direction of events that produce sounds in their surroundings.
