Safe, intuitive human-robot interaction requires that robots intelligently interface with their environments, ideally sensing and localizing physical contact across their link surfaces. We introduce a stretchable smart skin sensor that provides this function. Stretchability allows it to conform to arbitrary robotic link surfaces. It senses contact over(More)
Given the rise in surgeries performed with surgical robots and associated robotics research efforts, tool tracking methods have the potential to provide quantitative feedback concerning surgical performance and establish absolute tool tracking to help advance surgical robotics research. We have created a platform-agnostic method for low-cost tracking of(More)
