The program proposed in this workshop aims at initiating discussions around these several points of view. Authors specialists from the different scientific fields will give some presentations to illustrate the various aspects of the sense of touch. First, the industrial point of view will be given about the importance of the sense of touch, in particular for industrial texture design. Then, some considerations about psychophysics of haptic texture will be described, for thin rough surfaces. Further, the mechanical analysis of the finger-surface contact will be approached according to modelling methods.
All these considerations could help to give a better understanding of touch, and to provide guidelines to stress efficiently the finger pulp with adapted actuators and right control laws. Then, before considering technological point of view, a state of art of the different technologies used for tactile displays will be reminded and some specific displays for particular applications will be described. A design approach for laterotactile devices will be exposed. Finally, a case study for a portable tactile display for visually impaired will be presented.
