Sensing systems for industrial equipment (e.g. robots) to enable flexible and disruptive manufacturing techniques
Website | Sector: Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing
We strengthen the American manufacturing sector by developing novel, flexible manufacturing techniques to automate dull, dirty or dangerous tasks. Our aim is to increase through-put and efficiency by creating easy to set-up and implement solutions. Our compliant rubber tactile sensors (“skin”) give robots a sense of touch, equipping automation systems with high-resolution pressure sensing capabilities and providing accurate position-orientation and force-torque data of contacted or handled objects. Combined with vision systems, we address the full spectrum of industrial handling.
