— In minimally invasive surgery, tactile feedback is lacking. A tactile display, consisting of a matrix of micro-actuators, represents tactile sensations on the fingertip. Miniaturising powerful, dynamic and accurate actua-tors with a sufficient stroke and bandwidth is a considerable challenge. The use of pneumatics is promising due to the potential for(More)
The technical evolution has led to an important improvement of automated measurement stations (AMS) during the last years (1). Therefore AMS seem increasingly being part of measurement campaigns in the frame of water management projects. The advantages and disadvantages of AMS versus samplers and discrete manual sampling for the optimization, calibration(More)
