Robots could soon sense human touch, thanks to tactile artificial skin

A team of South Korean scientists has developed a tactile sensor that can be applied to robots as a type of skin, prompting robots to be able to feel the touch of humans. The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) said that its five-member team has developed a soft nano-composite material with a multiwall carbon nano-tube and silicone elastomer that is capable of detecting both contact force and location.
