Artificial skin gives robots a sense of touch – Mágica Mistura を

An artificial skin developed by the California Institute of Technology can give robots the ability to experience changes in temperature, pressure and even the presence of toxic chemicals through touch.

The new skin is used next to a robotic arm and sensors connected to human skin. With a system of machine learning, a human controls the robot using his own movements – and still receives a response in his own skin.

Nicknamed M-Bot, the multimodal robotic detection platform was developed in the laboratory of Wei Gao, professor of medical engineering at Caltech. His plan is to give humans more precise control over the action of robots, in addition to preventing them from putting themselves at risk.
