INnovative Network for Training in ToUch InteracTIVE Interfaces

Project description

Training network on haptic technology

Haptic devices have changed how people interact with virtual environments. Relating to the sense of touch, haptics refers to the technology that connects the user to a computer system by applying vibrations, motion or force. Funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme, the INTUITIVE project will train a new generation of researchers in the field. Early-stage researchers will work on hands-on training projects on novel soft biomorphic tactile skin based on flexible electronics and miniaturised soft sensors, and skin-inspired memory devices. Neuroscience research and computational modelling will enhance understanding on how robots could use various interaction modes to acquire knowledge of their haptic environment. They will facilitate the development of intuitive and efficient haptic displays for blind people.
