Measuring of the haptic contact temperature

Contact or touch temperature is an important parameter in the tactile quality of a surface. The feeling of the temperature that a material causes can be determined by using a measuring system. If this parameter is known, an objective feeling of quality can be made. The measurement results are shown on a sensotact-scale – a tactile reference system. A physical basis for these values is created by measuring the temperature of the surface shim. Afterwards a step-less measuring analog of the reference scale is possible. In the measuring system, temperature sensors of the thermoMETER CSmicro series are used.
