Office Hours

By appointment


The Cyber Valley Research Group on Intelligent Tactile Systems investigates biological systems' tactile sensing and perceiving mechanisms and creates artificial tactile systems operating in contact-rich environments. To this end, we conduct various interdisciplinary research at hardware and software levels, including new material investigation, sensor design, multiphysics simulation, transducer fabrication, signal processing, and machine learning. Our research will enable autonomous systems to recognize contacts and take advantage of their body's surface for manipulation, motion planning, and nonverbal communication.
