JAPERA and NEDO Develop High-precision, Ultra-sensitive Pressure Sensor System Capable of Recognizing Touch and Movement
- Greatly advances to realize the robot skin with the cutaneous sensation of human being -
1. Summary
JAPERA and NEDO have developed a high-precision, ultra-sensitive pressure sensor, as well as a system to apply it to robot skins. This sensor system recognizes various touches and movements (e.g., patting, swatting, rubbing) and, depending on the movement, reacts as if a robot experiences the touch in the same way as human being. This technology can lead to a drastic change in the way a consumer communicates with a robot. Furthermore, consumers can expect multiple functions for this innovation, which will be available at a low cost, because the sensors can be manufactured entirely by printing technology.
This sensor system is expected to contribute to realizing a robot with the cutaneous sensation of human being.
2. Exhibition
JAPERA will demonstrate the robot skin system in JAPERA’s booth (D049, Hall 5) of CEATEC JAPAN 2017.
In addition, there will be a demonstration of the “The Nursing Support Pressure Sensor which Cares Mental and Body by Fingertips Tracing”, an innovation developed through this project. The demonstration will take place at NEDO’s booth (S03, Hall 4).
