Tip: If the failing expression is known to be legally refer to something that's sometimes null or missing, either specify a default value like myOptionalVar!myDefault, or use <#if myOptionalVar??>when-present<#else>when-missing</#if>. (These only cover the last step of the expression; to cover the whole expression, use parenthesis: (myOptionalVar.foo)!myDefault, (myOptionalVar.foo)??

We are exploring capacitive, resistive, and piezoelectric materials, and mixed-mode subthreshold CMOS circuits with the aim of combining them for a hybrid skin capable of reacting to a broad range of tactile stimuli with low latency and low power consumption. We aim to reproduce the rich response of human tactile afferents to exploit their highly compressive and informative encoding, transmitting information only during contact and during changes of the contact.

We have just sent out a first test chip with prototype circuits for fabrication, in collaboration with the Bio-Inspired Circuits and Systems group at the University of Groningen!
