  1. Magnetic “Skin” Is Helping Robots to Feel

    Magnetic “Skin” Is Helping Robots to Feel
    After researching subtle changes in surrounding magnetic fields, a team of researchers from the City University of Hong Kong (CityU), South University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) of Pittsburgh has developed a new technology for robotic fingers. The fingertips have a soft tactile sensor with skin-comparable characteristics.  This discovery is believed to be a stepping stone into making ultra-sensitive prosthetic hands, as well as other applications in the robotics field. One of the most interesting findings is that by having this sensor at robots’ fingertips, they will accomplish “human” tasks that are challenging, such as gripping fragile objects, threading a needle, and more.  Continue reading →
