    The goal of the ROBOSKIN project is to develop and demonstrate a range of new robot capabilities based on the tactile feedback provided by a robotic skin covering large areas of the robot body. So far, a principled investigation of these issues has been limited by the lack of tactile sensing technology enabling large scale experimental activities. As a matter of fact, skin based technology and embedded tactile sensors have been mostly demonstrated only at the stage of prototypes. The new capabilities are expected to improve the ability of robots to effectively and safely operate in unconstrained environments, as well as to communicate and cooperate with each other and with humans.
