Physical Factors Influencing Pleasant Touch during Passive Fingertip Stimulation

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Tactile explorations with the fingertips provide information regarding the physical properties of surfaces and their relative pleasantness. Previously, we performed an investigation in the active touch domain and linked several surface properties (i.e. frictional force fluctuations and net friction) with their pleasantness levels. The aim of the… (More)
