A novel thin film polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) based flexible tactile micro sensor has been developed for contact traction distribution measurement between an indenter and an object (e.g. finger pad). The tactile sensor is a five layer device consisting of 2 layers of textured patterns sandwiched between 3 layers of PDMS. The textured patterns are protected(More)
The work in the Touch Lab (formal name: Laboratory for Human and Machine Haptics) is guided by a broad vision of haptics which includes all aspects of information acquisition and object manipulation through touch by humans, machines, of a combination of the two; and the environments can be real or virtual. In order to make progress, we conduct research in(More)

When we touch an object, surface loads imposed on the skin are transmitted to thousands of specialized nerve endings (mechanoreceptors) embedded within the skin. These mechanoreceptors transduce the mechanical signals imposed on them into a neural code of the incident stimuli, enabling us to feel the object. To understand the mechanisms of tactile(More)
