Sensitive and Robust Tactile Pressure Sensors for Robotic Grippers

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/280391

Current robotic sensing is mainly visual, which is useful up until the point of contact. To understand how an object is being gripped, tactile feedback is needed. Human grasp is gentle yet firm, with tactile touch feedback. Ras Labs makes Synthetic Muscle™, a class of electroactive polymer (EAP) based materials and actuators that sense pressure …
