A color-based sensor to emulate skin's sensitivity
In a step toward more autonomous soft robots and wearable technologies, EPFL researchers have created a device that uses color to simultaneously sense multiple mechanical and temperature stimuli.
AI helps detecting plastic in oceans
A research team from EPFL and Wageningen University has developed a new artificial intelligence model that recognises floating plastics much more accurately in satellite images than before. This could help to systematically remove plastic litter from the oceans with ships.
“We want to make the un-makable.”
Newly appointed Tenure Track Assistant Professor in the Institute of Electrical and Micro Engineering Daryl Yee blends unbridled curiosity with the precision of advanced materials science and manufacturing.
A medieval knight on the digital frontline
Daniel Jacquet, a scientist and project manager at EPFL’s Laboratory for Experimental Museology+ (eM+), is an unconventional academic. A leading expert in European martial arts, he often gives talks wearing a suit of armor.
“I enjoy getting my hands dirty”
Adil Koukab spends most of his time with the hundreds of students who attend his classes and lab sessions each semester. His aim? To help prepare them for a “dazzling career.” His efforts are appreciated, as he has been named the best teacher in the electrical engineering section for 2023.
