Sensing tactile microvibrations with the BioTac — Comparison with human sensitivity


The human fingertip is exquisitely sensitive to vibrations that are essential to detect slip and discriminate textures. Achieving similar functions with prosthetic and robotic hands will require tactile sensors with similar sensitivity. Many technologies have been developed to sense such vibrations, yet none have achieved the requisite sensitivity in a… (More)
