Professor Alexander Schmitz and his research team was awarded with the Best Paper Award at IEEE International Symposium on Robotics and Intelligent Sensors (held in Langkawi, Malaysia).
In this research they propose a novel capacitive 3-axis force sensor embedded in soft silicone for safe human-robot interaction and more robust object manipulation skills for robots.
