Understanding the biomechanics of vibro-tactile perception


   Department of Mechanical Engineering


About the Project

This project will build on previous research within the department to measure the ability of different users to perceive and respond to vibro-tactile interfaces (such as those used in phones and tablet devices). It will focus on imaging techniques and experimental methods to measure biomechanical properties of the hand and link these characteristics with the ability of human test participants to perceive vibrations. Numerical modelling may also be applied to the problem. Findings from the study will be used to better understand the reasons why tactile perception deteriorates with age or is linked to particular medical conditions.
