Artificial Skin Uses Soft Sensors To Replicate Human Touch
News   Sep 27, 2019

Researchers have developed a soft, flexible artificial skin made of silicone and electrodes. The skin's system of soft sensors and actuators enable the artificial skin to conform to the exact shape of a wearer's wrist. Strain sensors continuously measure the skin's deformation so that the haptic feedback can be adjusted in real time to produce a sense of touch that's as realistic as possible.
