With new technological advancements almost on a daily basis, it is no surprise that human senses are slowly starting to replicate into creating AI applications, and in the future, humanoid robots.
The endeavor to imitate the five senses of humans prompted the advancement of creative electronic gadgets, for example, camera and TV, which are innovations that drastically changed human life. Subsequently, numerous researchers are constantly performing an examination to copy material, olfactory, and sense of taste faculties and material detecting is required to be the following mimetic innovation for different reasons. At present, most material sensor inquires about are concentrating on physical mimetic advances that measure the weight utilized for a robot to snatch an article, yet psychosensory material research on the most proficient method to emulate human material feeling such as delicate, smooth or unpleasant has far to go.
Subsequently, Professor Jae Eun Jang’s group built up a material sensor that can feel agony and temperature like human through a joint research with Professor Cheil Moon’s group in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Science, Professor Ji-Woong Choi’s group in the Department of Information and Communication Engineering, and Professor Hongsoo Choi’s group in the Department of Robotics Engineering. Its key qualities are that it has disentangled the sensor structure and can gauge weight and temperature simultaneously and can be connected on different material frameworks paying little heed to the estimation rule of the sensor.
For this, the examination group concentrated on zinc oxide nano-wire innovation, which was connected as a self-control material sensor that does not require a battery on account of its piezoelectric impact, which creates electrical flag by distinguishing weight. Additionally, a temperature sensor utilizing Seebeck effect1 was connected simultaneously for one sensor to complete two employments. The examination group organized terminals on polyimide adaptable substrate became the ZnO nano-wire, and could gauge the piezoelectric impact by weight and the Seebeck impact by temperature change simultaneously. The examination group likewise prevailing with regards to building up a sign handling system that judges the age of agony sign considering the weight level, invigorated region and temperature.
