Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalPaperResearchpeer-review


EMICAB (Embodied Motion Intelligence for Cognitive, Autonomous Robots) is an EU founded project where a consortium of 4 Universities is working together to integrate smart body mechanics and sensors with intelligent planning and motor behavior in order to make a holistic approach to artificial cognitive systems. This contribution provides information and the first experimental results about smart material sensors done at the Mads Clausen Institute at the University of Southern Denmark, where the aim is to make a distributed smart sensor network with a redundancy of sensors mimicking that found on limbs of for instance stick insects.
