Surface characteristics of surface are very important factors for tactile perception in fabric, paper and furniture industries. In order to measure the surface characteristics such as frictional forces in multi-direction and variations of pressure, we designed measurement system attached by 3-component load cell. The hemispherical viscoelastic contact probe was made by silicon rubber as the fingerpad. The coefficients of frictions on the smoother surfaces are increased as compared with rough surface. Also we investigated people's degree of tactile perception about fabrics and compared the surface characteristics.
