New Ability to Sense in Future Smart Robots


New Ability to Sense in Future Smart Robots

Grabbing any object of different hardness or shape is intuitive for human. The feedback of sensing runs actively between the hand and our brain, preventing the slippage and the damage of the thing that we are holding. However, this is a complicated task for robots. To tackle this challenge, iHealthtech Principal Investigator Asst Prof Benjamin Tee has teamed up with Asst Prof Soh from the National University of Singapore (NUS) School of Computing to use an electronic skin and to develop a sensory integrated artificial brain system that mimics human neural networks on robots. The team also adopts Intel’s Loihi neuromorphic research chip for their new robotic system.
