Successful grasping with multi-fingered prosthetic or robotic hands remains a challenge to be solved for the effective use of these hands in unstructured environments. To this end, currently available tactile sensors need to improve their sensitivity, robustness, and spatial resolution, but a better knowledge of the distribution of contact forces in the human hand in grasping tasks is also necessary. The human tactile signatures can inform models for an efficient control of the artificial hands. In this study we present and analyze a dataset of tactile signatures of the human hand in twenty-one representative activities of daily living, obtained using a commercial high spatial resolution pressure sensor. The experiments were repeated for twenty-two subjects. The whole dataset includes more than one hundred million pressure data. The effect of the task and the subject on the grip force and the contribution to this grip force made by the different hand regions were analyzed. We also propose a method to effectively synchronize the measurements from different subjects and a method to represent the tactile signature of each task, highlighting the hand regions mainly involved in the task. The correlations between hand regions and between different tasks were also analyzed. View Full-Text
