+ - Tactile robot finger outperforms humans in identifying textures-> 1

Submitted by cylonlover
cylonlover (1921924) writes "Researchers at the University of California’s Viterbi School of Engineering have developed a finger-sized tactile sensor that consists of a soft, flexible skin covering a liquid filling. The skin even has fingerprints that enhance the sensor’s sensitivity to vibration, so that as the sensor slides over a textured surface, it vibrates in characteristic ways. The group’s BioTac sensor was built to mimic a human fingertip and can outperform humans in identifying a wide range of materials, offering potential use for the technology in robotics and prostheses."
