This project, a collaboration with Imperial College London, will develop and test a framework for optimising soft sensor systems. Our particular focus is the development of soft sensor systems which can be used to interrogate the force response of highly compliant materials (i.e. biological tissues). The research combines experimental and computational strands; we are developing the sensing platform using soft robotic techniques and optimising the configuration using a range of inverse-model based optimisation techniques.
