Haptic fingertip sensitivity for robots

In a paper published on February 23, 2022 in Nature Machine Intelligence, a team of scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) introduce a robust soft haptic sensor named “Insight” that uses computer vision and a deep neural network to accurately estimate where objects come into contact with the sensor and how large the applied Read more about Haptic fingertip sensitivity for robots[…]

Haptic feedback for custom fabricated multichannel bimodal soft robotic armband

Typing on a keyboard, pressing buttons on a remote control or braiding a child’s hair has remained elusive for prosthetic hand users. With current myoelectric prosthetic hands, users can only control one grasp function at a time even though modern artificial hands are mechanically capable of individual control of all five digits. A first-of-its-kind study Read more about Haptic feedback for custom fabricated multichannel bimodal soft robotic armband[…]

Information conveyed through haptic feedback has advantages as it can alert users privately

We are constantly surrounded by sounds and vibrations in our environment, such as a ringing phone or a buzzing smart device like a wearable activity tracker. While such notifications from personal devices are an efficient way of alerting users to an incoming call or email, do they also distract users from what they are currently Read more about Information conveyed through haptic feedback has advantages as it can alert users privately[…]

Touch-and-know with haptic feedback

Have you ever wondered whether the brains of right-handed people work differently from those of left-handers? Is it possible to distinguish between them by observing their brain activity in response to stimuli or tasks? These are important questions from the perspectives of both basic sciences and application-based fields such as brain-computer interfaces, rehabilitation robotics, and Read more about Touch-and-know with haptic feedback[…]
