On 8 April 2009, the FHI trade association for industrial electronics, in collaboration with the Dutch Technology Foundation STW, organized Sense of Contact 11. The goal was to show the potential of sensors to solve current issues and challenges. This eleventh edition of the sensor technology workshop, in Zeist in the centre of the Netherlands, focussed on three issues: environment, power and size. Dutch universities, institutes and industry presented their recent sensor (and actuator) research and development results pertaining to these three challenges.


Order of frictions and stiffnesses…

For lumped systems consisting of different frictions and stiffnesses, there has been confusion in literature about hysteresis curves and virtual play for many decades.
