Tactile Sensing and Fabric Interface Videos – for a Coffee Break

Vision-based Tactile Sensing

GelSight achieves a high-precision tactile sensing. It can even detect fingerprints.


Exploring the Potential of GelSight

GelForce at Tachi Lab utilizes a transparent elastic material, two layers of blue and red markers, and a camera. When a user touches GelForce, the blue and red markers are distorted. The camera acquires the image and calculate the magnitude and direction of the applied force.

Hairy Tactile Sensing

Fibratus tactile sensor provides a new way of sensing mothers’ soft touches. This hairy (furry?) sensor is composed of flexible fibers, silicon rubbers, patterned surfaces and a CCD camera.
