ECE Seminar: Kris Dorsey

January 25, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Seminar Title: Challenges and opportunities in design in tunable, soft mechanical sensors. Location: Zoom Link Abstract: Physically-soft mechanical sensors are poised to unlock exciting new applications in wearable devices, robotics, and human-machine interfaces. Typically with these sensors, tuning their properties through the device geometry is a challenge. A promising development in soft mechanical sensors is hierarchically-patterned structures within the sensor, which enables both deformation selectivity and the ability to tune, and potentially reconfigure, sensing properties. Dorsey will discuss challenges and recent work related to designing and fabricating hierarchically-patterned sensors, including origami-patterned sensors. Dorsey…
