Veni Award for Danqing Liu

Communicating polymers towards haptics and soft robotics
Dr.ir. D. (Danqing) Liu (f) TU Eindhoven Institute for Complex Molecular Systems 

The researcher will develop ‘communicating polymers’ channelling communication between humans and machineries. By an external trigger the ‘smart’ surfaces deform locally which impart tactile perception to human fingers and enable devices to ‘talk’ to humans. Reversibly, the surfaces receive touch commands from humans in respect to both location and force.
