Skin-Based Technologies and Capabilities for \nSafe, Autonomous and Interactive Robots

Objective

Development of a skin for robot
The ROBOSKIN project has the goal to develop and demonstrate a range of new robot capabilities based on the tactile feedback provided by a robotic skin from large areas of the robot body. The new capabilities will improve the ability of robots to operate effectively and safely in unconstrained environments and also their ability to communicate and co-operate with each other and with humans. One side of the ROBOSKIN project focuses on the investigation of methods and technologies enabling the implementation of skin sensors that can be used with existing robots. The other side of the project develops new structures for representing and integrating tactile data with existing cognitive architectures in order to support skin-based cognition, behaviour and communication.
