In the latest Talking Robots podcast we interview Yoky Matsuoka, head of the Neurobotics Laboratory at the University of Washington in Seattle. Combining robotics with neuroscience, Matsuoka has constructed an Anatomically Correct Testbed hand (ACT) using passive compliant materials coupled with simple control algorithms rather than traditional materials. Apart from serving as a testbed for scientific studies of the neuro-control of movement, Matsuoka is also working on future applications in tele-manipulation and prosthetics. For more on this and other projects conducted at her lab listen in.
