Amorepacific developed an intelligent tactile sensor that is capable of measuring skin sensations. This new sensor will enable the development of cosmetics with fine tuned textures.
These tactile sensors combine machine learning with measurement technology. This enables them to recognize the temperature, moisture levels, and even the type of solution used and then convert this information into digital values. Park Young-ho, Head of R&I Center at Amorepacific said:
“Now, we are able to provide verified and reliable results by comparing the cool and warm sensations of cosmetics for evaluation. We will continue to further secure data using advanced technology and bring about innovations through research.”
This project was achieved in collaboration with Professor Ko Hyun-hyub and his team at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), where they have cutting-edge technology for the sensor that mimics human skin.
