Nanotech Sensors Afford Robots A Light Touch

Abstract:
A new type of sensor may give robots a truly light touch—using electricity and tiny particles to allow a machine to "feel" surfaces, researchers reported on Thursday. Vivek Maheshwari and Ravi Saraf of the University of Nebraska in Lincoln said their electroluminescent film glowed in response to an applied force.
