Developing innovations that power the future

Nature-inspired Sensorware

Our group aims to develop core platform technologies that enables massive integration of artificial sensory systems that surpass the human equivalent.

Nature ensures survival by endowing complex living organisms with distinct skin sensors that have very high complexity. These structures enable skin sensors, for example, to be highly strain sensitive, and communicate in real time pertinent environment information. Endowing artificial systems with cutting-edge hapto-tactile capabilities could impact several areas such as next generation human-like robotic assistants, immersive virtual reality, smarter human-machine interfaces, wearable technologies and life-like prosthetics.
