Preface
PrefaceThere are five types of sensing modalities, namely touch, sight, smell, sound, and taste. To understand the development of the tactile sensing system, it is useful to compare these types of senses. For the sense of sight, artificial vision systems are now widely used. This is also true for many sound or audio systems. In this category, speech analysis and recognition topics are among the most active research areas. Audio systems have found a number of applications in various industries. Nowadays, even the studies on the senses of smell and taste are moving towards devices that can, respectively, act as an artificial nose or taste simulator. Generally, the five sensing modalities for a healthy human-being are, in fact, completel…
