PowerON’s TouchDetect Skin on Pneumatic Hand
Have you ever asked what “Smart Elastic” really looks like? Here is something for you! PowerON’s engineers integrated a soft, flexible, and stretchable TouchDetect tactile skin with a pneumatic robotic hand. With our tactile skin, the hand feels its environment and reacts differently as it encounters various things. Now it can catch balls and interact with the operator. In the future, we will use TouchDetect to give tactile feeling to industrial robotic grippers, to automate still-manual tasks and make human-robot collaboration safer.
