To achieve automatic needle puncturing for automatic blood sampling, we studied peak waveforms of the puncture forces developed during penetration of a blood vessel. Computer simulations of controlled needle puncture were performed using data from experiments on puncturing a rabbit's ear vein. Reproducible results of successive puncturing suggested that this simulation could be applied to the control of needles used for automatic blood sampling.
