The Right Sensors Make Robots More Lifelike

White Paper Published By: Tekscan
Published:  Dec 07, 2017
Type:  White Paper

From the operating room to the manufacturing floor, the robotic industry continues to grow and mature. As demand for robotic devices increases, so do the technology requirements.

Robots depend on a variety of sensors to interact effectively with the physical environment. Thin, flexible force sensors enable applications from appropriate grip force for accurate handling of delicate objects to helping a humanoid robot maintain a steady balance and gait.

This white paper covers these applications and more. It also provides a look at the underlying sensor technology and discusses important considerations in designing sensors into a robotic application.
