Tactile sensors for Humans and Robots
Ego tango, ergo sum.    

The sense of touch is one of the most important ones for living species to perceive themselves and their surroundings.

Our goal is to recreate the sense of touch for people who have lost their limbs. For more than 10 years we have been developing tactile sensors, which we test and refine in a scientific context using state-of-the-art anthropomorphic robot hands.

Our state-of-the-art sensors are based on bi-elastic substrates. This makes them very robust and at the same time soft, similar to human skin.
