Smart soft robotic fingers

Title: Tendon driven soft finger for optimal tactile sensation

It is known that mechanoreceptors in human fingers are strategically located to sense very specific components of soft tissue vibration/deformation when the finger touches an object. In this project, the student will develop a simplified prototype of a soft finger with bones and tendons, and place a vibration/force sensor (hall sensors or flexiforce sensors that will be provided to you) to develop design guidelines for future smart sot robotic fingers.
