I am a PhD student enthusiastic about of robotics and haptics. My research interests include the creation of soft haptic sensor for robotic and prosthetic hands as well as the soft robotics. I focus on the hardware design, modelling and application of soft material based haptic feedback systems that have the ability to sense and feedback the haptic perception from touch point of robotic/prosthetic hands to users. I create and embed novel soft mechanisms as well as combine advanced AI(Artificial
Intelligence) for the decoding of haptic information in the prototypes of haptic feedback systems.
Research Summary
The vision of my PhD project is to explore an innovative and novel haptic feedback system based on fluidic actuation for cosmetic, body-powered and robotic prosthetic upper limbs. A mechano-tactile haptic feedback system will be developed using a hydraulic soft tactile fingertip sensor and a wearable haptic mechano-tactile actuator with a soft material structure on the other side. Latest technology in additive manufacturing will allow printing soft and rigid material. Hence, the haptic feedback system can be printed and easily integrated in a robotic/prosthetic hand.
