Paper Abstract

We describe experiments aimed at assessing the applicability of fibre Bragg grating sensors to distributive tactile sensing. Strain signals from flexible surfaces instrumented with Bragg grating sensors are processed using neural networks so as to obtain the location, shape and orientation of objects placed on the surfaces.
