In the project named "Capacity Building & Training to Develop Textile Based Electronic Skin to Enable Human Robot Interaction for The Assistance of Older-Adults in Turkey & The Economic Growth of the Turkish Textile Sector" directed by our faculty member İkilem Göcek, it is aimed to design "friendly" robots that will facilitate the lives of elderly individuals by making textile surfaces conductive and integrating them with robots.

The project, supported by the Newton-Katip Çelebi Fund, is carried out in collaboration with Coventry University from England.

In addition, Kadıköy Municipality is among the supporters of the project.
