UT Arlington research team wins $1.35 million NSF robotics grant to develop smart skin applications
Date:12/7/2012

broad range of national needs such as advanced manufacturing, logistics, transportation, homeland security, defense, medicine, healthcare, space exploration and agriculture. NASA, the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Agriculture also are participating in the initiative.

Ron Elsenbaumer, UT Arlington provost and vice president for academic affairs, called the UT Arlington award a remarkable recognition of the advanced technologies being refined at the University.

"This important research represents an exciting opportunity for some of our leading electrical engineers and robotics experts to collaborate and optimize their technologies for the betterment of humankind," Elsenbaumer said.

Popa's project, "NRI-Small: Multi-modal sensor skin and garments for healthcare and home robots," predicts that "Co-robots of the future will share their living spaces with humans, and, like people, will wear sensor skins and clothing that must be interconnected, fitted, cleaned, repaired, and replaced."

Popa adds that the research will "unlock near-term and unforeseen applications of robotic skin with broad applicability, and especially to home assistance, medical rehabilitation and prosthetics."

Jean-Pierre Bardet, dean of the College of Engineering, called the collaboration one of the best examples of how UT Arlington researchers are developing real world solutions to improve people's lives.

"This is exactly the kind of team effort that will advance innovations developed in UT Arlington research labs toward the marketplace and help people live independently longer," Bardet said.

The work will capitalize on "smart skin" embedded with sensors developed by Celik-Butler and Don Butler, and algorithms and data networking developed by Lewis.
