Mr. Francesco Vichi, currently a M.Sc. student at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa (Italy) will be spending one month at AIROB, on a scientific cooperation with the Neurorobotic Touch Laboratory headed by Prof. Calogero Oddo.

We will be exploring interesting applications of tactile sensing based upon Fiber Bragg Gratings. If you have no idea what this is, check out the Lab’s web page as well as, for instance, the following paper:
