Outline

Tactile feelings are subjective and ambiguous. If they are quantified and shared for skills and feelings communication, accuracy, efficiency, comfort, and QOL (quality of life) are enhanced in medical, welfare, and manufacturing fields. This leads to the establishment of sustainable, progressive, and people-friendly societies. This study focuses on inner characteristics of haptic perception and aims to understand tactile feelings, to develop assistive devices capable of controlling tactile sensitivity and altering feelings, and to establish tactile communication assistive technology bases for skills and feelings transmission.
