Thesis

Shear strain sensor for improving robotic and human dexterity

Research intent
To develop a sensor to measure shear, which will be incorporated into a dielectric elastomer material. The sensor could be used for a variety of different applications as required for health purposes for example:

  1. Stroke retrains for grip capacity.
  2. Prevention of diabetic foot ulcers.

The sensor will also be applicable to other mainstream soft-robotic applications.
