  • The first book on tactile sense studies for ergonomic engineering
  • Introduces ‘tactile score analysis,’ which contributes to making human beings feel comfortable
  • Includes interesting movies with melodies which express the direction of motion and intensity during massage

This book deals with one of the most novel advances in natural computing, namely, in the field of tactile sense analysis. Massage, which provides relaxation and stimulation for human beings, is analyzed in this book for the first time by encoding the motions and tactile senses involved. The target audience is not limited to researchers who are interested in natural computing but also includes those working in ergonomic design, biomedical engineering, Kansei engineering, and cognitive science.
