Workshop on "The Science and Engineering of Surface Tactile Displays"

Introduction to the workshop

 

Recent years have witnessed accelerated research on tactile displays based on surface haptics where the objective is to stimulate fingertips directly from the contact with a smooth, transparent surface.

Owing to their numerous applications, this type of tactile display has attracted considerable attention from academia and industry and the like.

This workshop addresses the science and the engineering of such displays, beginning with a discussion of the latest results in the neurophysiology of touch, continuing with advanced notions in the biotribology of fingertips, skin mechanics and mechano‐transduction, tactile perception and finishing with the physics and

engineering of surface displays
