This paper presents the design construction and working principle of a new opto-tactile sensor. It can partially recognize an object by assessing its surface texture. The sensor is consisted of a piece of full-silvered mirror secured on a tactile end, optic fiber cables, and necessary electronic components. It utilizes the idea of tactile deflection obstructed by object profile irregularities what changes the intensity of reflected rays from the mirror. A correlation between that intensity changes depending on the variation of geometrical parameters of surface texture has been developed. The sensor is fabricated and tested for a number of objects demonstrating the variation of surface textures for different object samples in graphical form. The results can be used for robots or intelligent machines for partial recognition of objects evaluating their surface profile texture. This may be also a useful unit for designing intelligent machine systems.
