The City University of Hong Kong has developed an epidermal wireless human-machine interaction interface with haptic feedback. Wearing this lightweight, flexible e-skin system enables remote human-machine interaction and robot control, which can be used for nursing robots, surgical robots and new crown sampling robots.
The current lack of haptic feedback in the field of human-robot interaction is addressed. This epidermal flexible system enables wireless robot control through the strain sensing of joint flexion and finger grasping, and also integrates a haptic feedback device to re-feed the robot's sense of touch to the operator.
As one of the fastest growing universities in the world over the past decade, City University of Hong Kong (CityU) is recognised as a hub for innovation in research and professional education. CityU identifies solutions to critical global challenges by extending the frontiers of knowledge both within and beyond existing research paradigms.
The University’s highly qualified academics are drawn from all over the world, not only bringing a wealth of research and professional experience to the teaching programmes, but also contributing to the knowledge and technology advancement.
