Combining deep learning algorithms with robotic engineering, researchers have developed a new robot able to combine vision and touch.
Researchers have created an artificial nervous system that may give prosthetics and robots reflexes and the ability to sense touch. The system is sensitive enough to identify letters in the Braille alphabet.
Newly designed electronic skin allows a robotic hand to sense differences in temperature between hot and cold. Additionally, the skin can interpret computer signals to help the hand reproduce sign language, researchers report.
