Simulation of Human Tactile Perception using Neural Networks

Mihir Ganu Sanket Sharma Moksharth Doshi

  • Abstract

    There is ample research present on haptics and thehaptic technology is actively applied in numerous engineering applications. However, little research is present in training machines the perception of human touch. We introduce a novel method for training machines the perception of hardness of the object being presented to the machine’s surface. The machine simulates the sensory perception process in humans to perceive the hardness of the object. The simulation is done using neural networks. The training of the network is achieved using samples obtained from human subjects. Similar to humans, the trained network successfully rates the hardness of the object .
