This work aims to demonstrate the feasibility that haptic information can be acquired from a da Vinci robotic tool using audio sensing according to sensor placement requirements in a real clinical scenario. For that, two potential audio sensor locations were studied using an experimental setup for performing, in a repeatable way, interactions of a da Vinci forceps with three different tissues. The obtained audio signals were assessed in terms of their resulting signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) and their capability to distinguish between different tissues. A spectral energy distribution analysis using Discrete Wavelet Transformation was performed to extract signal signatures from the tested tissues. Results show that a high SNR was obtained in most of the audio recordings acquired from both studied positions. Additionally, evident spectral energy-related patterns could be extracted from the audio signals allowing us to distinguish between different palpated tissues.
