Advanced Sensotronics

Our group develops cutting-edge artificial sensory devices and robotic systems inspired by natural biological systems for AI applications.

Welcome to the TEE Research Group

We are developing new materials, devices and systems for addressing the challenges in human-machine interactions, robotics and biotechnology applications for the AI future.
Adopting a multi-disciplinary approach, we aim to study fundamental physical effects and integrate knowledge from material science, nano-electronics, communications and biology to design and realize frontier devices and system architectures for multi-scale, multi-modal sensing.

Our research team is led by Principal Investigator Dr Benjamin C.K. Tee.

Our latest research is online in Robotics: Science and Systems

In this work, we developed a neuromorphic robotic skin, NeuTouch, and power efficient AI algorithms that combine touch and vision for intelligent grasping tasks.

The work was also highlighted on NUS News and by Intel.

Our latest research on the cover of Science Robotics

Electronic Skins need a nervous system. In this work, we developed an artificial nervous system we call ACES, that can enable large scale integration of sensors for robotics and prosthetics, enabling greater intelligence and speed.

Our latest research on the cover of Nature Electronics

Self-healing materials are an exciting research area for intelligent materials. In this work, we developed an underwater capable electronic material that can be used in emerging soft robots, stretchable electronics and electronic skins.
