●Sensing Soft Robot (Silicon Finger with PVDF sensor) (Mar,2020 - Nov,2020)
Soft finger sensing the bending status, touch, grip force, slip, and surface texture. This made it possible for the finger to automatically control the grip force without visual information. This can be applied to biomedical application, and industrial application.

-Won Minister of Science and ICT Award in Practical Research Competition (2 Million KRW)
-Target Journal : Soft Robotics(SoRo) -IF:6.16

●BCI As an Emotional Assistant (Feb,2020 -)
To make computers more empathetic and obliging to the mental wellness of users, currently developing a real-time emotion recognizing system that enables a computer to sense the user’s emotional state with around 90% accuracy, and controls the peripheral environment for their emotional recovery.
