ATSHP: Artificial Tactile Sensing and Haptic Perception

Chair and Coordinator

Lei Mei, Ph.D., California Research Center, Agilent -Santa Clara, California, USA


In the past decade, we’ve seen an enormous increase in wearable haptic feedback sensor networks which use sense of touch for communication. Artificial Tactile Sensing and Haptic Perception (ATSHP) has already been used in various areas of modern technologies, such as human interface devices (HID), virtual reality (VR) and touch simulation, remote medical surgery, etc. Development of multimodal systems that provide visual, auditory and haptic engagement will offer academic and commercial opportunities, such as surgical simulation, biomimetic robots, medical training, and assistive interfaces.

The scope of ATSHP track includes advanced touch sensing techniques, smart sensor networks to the creation of haptic systems, applications of touch sensors and haptics (e.g., touchpads, haptic stylus), also haptic rendering algorithms.

Topics include, but not limited to:

  • Robot based haptic perception
  • Touch sensors and proximity sensors
  • Tactile sensor networks
  • Sensor electronic interfaces
  • Tactile display and haptic rendering
  • Haptic interpretation and visualization
  • Touch-based human-robot interaction
  • Sensors for Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)


Papers should be submitted through EAI 'Confy' system at Confy, and have to comply with the SPRINGER format (see Author's kit section).
