사람 손보다 100배 민감한 로봇 손가락

로봇 기술이 계속해서 발달하고 있지만, 아직까지는 로봇들의 움직임은 사람에 비해서 부자연스럽고 민첩하지 못합니다. 하지만 미국 메사추세츠 공과대학(MIT)의 연구진은 최근, 사람 손보다 훨씬 예민한 로봇 촉각센서를 개발했다고 밝혔습니다. 이번에 MIT에서 개발한 로봇 촉각센서는, 사물의 위치와 움직임을 빠른 속도로 파악해서 정확하게 미세한 조종을 할 수 있다고 합니다. 연구진에 따르면 이 센서를 이용하면 로봇의 손가락을 사람의 손가락보다 100배 예민하게 만들 수 있다고 합니다. 이번 연구를 통해서 로봇의 움직임이 훨씬 정교해지고 자연스러워질 수 있게 되었는데, 앞으로 다양한 분야에 활용될 수 있을 것으로 예상됩니다.

    I used to always buy content when there was no paypal required, too bad I can no longer purchase with my debit card

    I downloaded the sample articles and have no problems accessing the mp3 and pdf files. However as my netbook does not support the .epub file (I do not have Kakao Talk either) I was wondering if I subscribe to this series, will the learning material be complete without the .epub file.

    (Sorry, I’m in my late 50’s and am not IT-savvy, hence the question.)

      Hi mag, Like with the sample you’ll receive pdf and mp3 files 🙂 A link to download it is send by e-mail so you should be fine! You can also choose to get the epub files.

    What date and time are articles sent out to subscribers? I know it’s Fridays and Tuesdays, but I assume that’s Korean time? I subscribed on Thursday in the US, but haven’t gotten my first article yet.
