 Flexible Tactile Sensor:
Human skin is the largest sensory organ. It is not only a protective barrier between us and surroundings, but also helps us to perceive the physical world at ease.  Recent years, flexible electronics, which can bend, twist and fold reversibly, have been rapidly developed to imitate or surpass the characteristics and functions of human skin. As is well known that sensors can sense the surrounding information and convert it into required forms of signal, providing us with physical, chemical, and biological information about our surroundings. As with the role of tactile sensory receptors in human skin, flexible tactile sensors can convert external force signal into electrical signal and is one of the most indispensable and prevailing kinds of flexible sensors. It has attracted great interest in the applications in health monitoring, artificial intelligence and soft robotics. Our group is devoted to develop new tactile sensing materials and sensors, manufacture high-performance, multi-functional tactile sensing systems eventually by integrating artificial intelligence algorithms, digital and analog circuits. It has been applied to the fields of motion detection, health monitoring, Braille recognition and human-computer interaction.
