Scientists have created a system based on a crack-based sensor that is said to be so sensitive that it allows the wearer to detect the light brush of a feather.
The new sensor could simplify the interplay between humans and machines, providing a seamless interactive platform for virtual and augmented reality scenarios.
Researchers have combined artificial skin with control algorithms, creating what is claimed to be the first autonomous humanoid robot with full-body artificial skin.
Researchers have developed an artificial skin-like membrane for augmenting interactive devices such as phones, wearables and computers.
Researchers have developed a new technology that identifies objects and executes actions following a simple knock against a smartphone. The software is powered by machine learning that analyses sounds, vibrations and other reactions.
Asynchronous Coded Electronic Skin has ultrahigh responsiveness and robustness to damage, and can be paired with any kind of sensor skin layers to function effectively as an electronic skin.
New sensor technology could be used as part of a smart pill bottle that sends wireless alerts when it detects tampering, overdose or unsafe storage conditions.
Researchers took an ultralightweight, highly flexible film made from an elastic polymer and turned it into an adaptable sensory organ for a variety of technical applications.
STMicroelectronics' FingerTip touchscreen controller (TSC) is powering all three of the latest Xiaomi Mi8 smartphone models — Standard, SE and Explorer.
Inspired by human skin, researchers have constructed a tactile sensor that detects pressure and pulses, replicating the experience of pressurised human touch.
Researchers have developed a low-cost sensor made from semiconducting plastic that can be used to diagnose or monitor a wide range of health conditions.
Silicon chips from semiconductor company STMicroelectronics have enabled the creation of zForce AIR touch-sensing modules.
Qeexo and STMicroelectronics have announced a collaboration to further accelerate integration of Qeexo's FingerSense technology by OEMs.
Japanese researchers have developed a robotic arm that serves as a real-time avatar for a remotely located user, to whom it transmits sound, vision and highly sensitive feelings of touch.
Silicon Labs' CPT212B and CPT213B TouchXpress capacitive touch controllers provide a fast and easy way for design engineers to add low-power capacitive touch interfaces to embedded designs.
