Item description for Sensitive Skin (Selected Topics in Electronics and Systems - Vol. 18) by Vladimir Lumelsky, Michael Shur & Sigurd Wagner...
A study of the principles, methodology and prototypes of sensing skin-like devices and related intelligence and software. "Sensitive skins" are large-area and flexible arrays of sensors integrated onto the entire surface of machines. Sensitive skin will endow these machines with the senses of proximity, touch, pressure, temperature, and chemical/biological agents, thus making possible the use of unsupervised machines in unstructured and unpredictable surroundings. Being transducers producing massive data flow, sensitive skin devices will constitute yet another advance in the information revolution.
