The aim of this study is the development of a human-friendly tactile sensor for measuring softness, sliminess, smoothness, and so on. We have proposed active tactile sensing method using balloon expansion. A balloon is contacted with an object and expanded by using fluid. Tactile information is evaluated by measuring the expansion process. In this paper, we(More)
PURPOSE Tactile sensing techniques may distinguish tumor from healthy tissue and have potential for intraoperative brain tumor diagnosis. The aim of this study is to develop a biocompatible real-time sensing system to measure tactile information such as softness and smoothness, and its application to brain tumor diagnosis. METHODS An active tactile sensor(More)
