Pic: The robot being developed by the German Aerospace Centre

SensoPAC has a variety of projects under way.

These include (from BBC News):
  • "The work at the University of Granada is concentrating on the design of microchips that incorporate a full neuronal system, emulating the way the cerebellum interacts with the human nervous system. "

  • "...an artificial skin for robots, making them look more human-like as well as being information-sensitive in the same way as human skin is"

  • "...Feelix Growing - has been given 2.3m euros to develop robots that can learn from humans and respond socially and emotionally. "
