Video-based measurement of the friction coefficient between cloth and a substrate

Participants : Haroon Rasheed, Victor Romero, Florence Bertails-Descoubes.

In collaboration with Arnaud Lazarus (Sorbonne Université, Institut Jean le Rond d'Alembert), Jean-Sébastien Franco and Stefanie Wuhrer (Inria, Morphéo team), we have investigated a first non-invasive measurement network for estimating cloth friction at contact with a substrate. Our network was trained on data exclusively generated by the solver Argus co-developed by the Elan team, which we have carefully validated against real experiments under controlled conditions. We have shown promising friction measurement results on multiple real cloth samples contacting various kinds of substrates, by comparing our estimations based on a simple video acquisition protocol against standard measurements. This work has been submitted in late 2019 for publication in a Computer Vision conference, and some preliminary results have been communicated about in a mechanical congress [4].
