SKKU (SungKyunKwan University)
This group has been developing structured light 3D cameras for some time.
The started working on IR (Infra-Red) based 3D cameras in 2005 and developed their first projector-based 3D camera in 2006.
They were demonstrating their Pico-SL12 “Alligator” 3D camera and promoting their spin-off company called “InG 3D Camera”.
KRISS (Korea Research Institute of Standards & Science)
They have been working on tactile sensors and were demonstrating a touch-sensitive finger tip for robots.
The group has published a paper:
Kim et al., “Robot fingertip tactile sensing module with a 3D-curved shape using molding technique”, Sensors and Actuators A: Physical, 2013 PDF
This shows you the force distribution on
the finger-tip, when pressure is applied.
I noticed the local Korean distributor was handing out flyers that feature a Hubo robot
preparing to do a crane kick, like in the movie “Karate Kid”.
