In this paper we present texture analysis results for TACTIP, a versatile tactile sensor and artificial fingertip which exploits compliant materials and optical tracking. In comparison to previous MEMS sensors, the TACTIP device is especially suited... Read More about TACTIP - Tactile fingertip device, texture analysis through optical tracking of skin features.

TACTIP - Tactile fingertip device, challenges in reduction of size to ready for robot hand integration (2012)
Presentation / Conference
Winstone, B., & Griffiths, G. (2012, December). TACTIP - Tactile fingertip device, challenges in reduction of size to ready for robot hand integration. Paper presented at 2012 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Biomimetics (ROBIO 2012)

Previous work on the TACTIP project has demonstrated a prototype tactile fingertip device, at a little over twice the diameter(40mm) of a human fingertip (16-20mm). Unlike most other developed MEMS sensors, the TACTIP device is appropriate for all ta...
