    Abstract

    Among several tactile sensors in use currently, none can evaluate the sense of gentle touch. We have developed a fibratus tactile sensor that utilizes the property of reflection. This sensor enables to evaluate the sense of gentle touch. We propose a new interface de- vice that employs this fibratus tactile sensor.
