Paper Abstract

An edge detection algorithm for use with tactile sensors is presented in this paper. The algorithm is based on the physical properties of the tactile sensor and tactile data. In addition, the algorithm is computationally efficient, and is thus suitable for real-time data processing. Experimental results from the application of this algorithm to a Lord LTS-210 tactile array sensor are presented. Further, observations about the use of a tactile sensor in a system are discussed. The proposed algorithm is a part of a real-time controller, implemented on CMU DD Arm II, that uses a tactile sensor in the feedback loop.
