Abstract

Rodents demonstrate a capability of shape recognition and texture discrimination through active whisking. Biomimetic whisker design and experiments reveal that rodent whiskers can provide precise localization information rather than just a binary information about object presence. We compare the artificial whisker system and real biological whiskers. We suggest that the deflection angle the sensors measure is an important cue for tactile localization for both the artificial system and biological system.
