Electronic Glove a Step Toward Robotic Hands with Capabilities of Human Skin

(TheRobotReport) Stanford University’s chemical engineer Zhenan Bao and her team of engineers have developed an electronic glove containing sensors that could one day give robotic hands the sort of dexterity that humans take for granted.
In a paper published Nov. 21 in Science Robotics, Bao demonstrated that the sensors work well enough to allow a robotic hand to touch a delicate berry and handle a pingpong ball without squashing them.
“This technology puts us on a path to one day giving robots the sort of sensing capabilities found in human skin,” Bao said.
