New publication online available in "Sensors" special issue


Congratulations to Florian Bergner, Emmanuel Dean​-Leon and Gordon Cheng​!

Their paper: "Design and Realization of an Efficient Large-Area Event-Driven E-Skin" has been published in Sensors as part of the Special Issue Neuromorphic Computing for Event-Based Sensors and Actuators and is now available online.

Abstract:
The sense of touch enables us to safely interact and control our contacts with our surroundings. Many technical systems and applications could profit from a similar type of sense. Yet, despite the emergence of e-skin systems covering more extensive areas, large-area realizations of e-skin effectively boosting applications are still rare. Recent advancements have improved the deployability and robustness of e-skin systems laying the basis for their scalability. However, the upscaling of e-skin systems introduces yet another challenge—the challenge of handling a large amount of heterogeneous tactile information with complex spatial relations between sensing points. We targeted this challenge and proposed an event-driven approach for large-area skin systems.
