Abstract

Tactile sensing is the foundation of interaction within the environment. Tactile systems are used to gather information from its surroundings. This research contribution is to present a new feature of a recently proposed multimodal tactile sensor. Data acquisition was conducted by the Robotic Operating System (ROS) and data processing used a Smoothed Z-score Peak Detection algorithm. The heart rate was calculated by the tactile sensor and compared to a commercially available wrist monitor. The sensor and the monitor presented the same results for each trial in rest condition with the exception of one, where it differed by 1 bpm (1.8%).
