Paper Abstract

We have developed new type tactile endoscope with silicone rubber membrane. The system consists of silicone rubber membrane, image sensor and illumination system. A surface of the Silicone rubber membrane has any patterns which made by nanotechnology. This pattern is deformed by pressing tissue such as cancer, colon and so on. The deformed pattern is captured by image sensor. This pattern is analyzed by image processing. In this paper, the proposed architecture is presented. With several test targets, the characteristics of the prototype systems are evaluated in the computation simulation.
