Artificial tactile sensing
The 260-page book Artificial Tactile Sensing in Biomedical Engineering details the design and manufacture of artificial tactile systems and their applications in surgical procedures. It explains the fundamentals of human touch and the techniques for artificially replicating it. Optical, thermal, strain gauge and piezoelectric sensors are discussed, along with topics such as tactile image information through palpation as well as tactile sensing in remote and robotic surgery.
