Presents Mechanics of Localized Slippage in Tactile Sensing
Offers for the first time a full description of a slippage of a soft fingertip by the proposed beam bundle model
Written by leading experts in the field
Localized slippage occurs during any relative sliding of soft contacts, ranging from human fingertips to robotic fingertips. Although this phenomenon is dominant for a very short time prior to gross slippage, localized slippage is a crucial factor for any to-be-developed soft sensing system to respond to slippage before it occurs. The content of this book addresses all aspects of localized slippage, including modeling and simulating it, as well as applying it to the construction of novel sensors with slip tactile perception.
