E7021: Design sensors for robot hands in Splash Spring 2019 (May. 04 - 05, 2019)
Conventional robots, even the state-of-the-art robots, which are made by former Google-owned Boston Dynamics, lack sensors on their hands. For example, it is impossible for a robot to grip a randomly shaped object without damaging its rigid plate-shaped hand. How can we make robot hands to be able to conduct dexterous activities, which need tactile sensing for feedback control.

E6866: What is electronic skin? in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
Robots are becoming more and more human-like. They are jumping, tumbling and getting artificial intelligence. However robots still can not be our friend due to the loss of the tactile sense. Then, what if we make electronic skin for robot? The electronic skin will help prevent robots from crushing us! Let's learn what kind of electronic skins for robot are developed and share a great idea to make robots our friend-like.
