Description:The mechanisms of how humans localize touch on their bodies are not fully understood. To increase understanding, specific manipulations of tactile localization are needed. One possibility is to exploit self-contact when the human is sliding over its skin surface, but insert a robot arm in the middle [1] - the movements of, say, the right arm will be detected by a motion capture system and then translated to a robot manipulator that is sliding over the skin of the other arm of the human. Specific spatial or temporal manipulations can be introduced. The human will be asked where she felt the touch and based analysis of the answers, better understanding of the localization process can be obtained.
