Development Kit v2.0
Ideal for research and development
The PapillArray Tactile Sensor Development Kit (manual) is a system of two PapillArray Tactile Sensor (3 x 3) arrays (spec) and a Controller (spec). Each PapillArray Tactile Sensor array can measure 3D displacement, 3D force, and vibration on each sensing element, as well as global 3D force, global 3D torque, the onset of slip, and friction. The Controller supplies power to, and coordinates the simultaneous data acquisition from, two PapillArray Tactile Sensors. The Development Kit is shipped with standalone visualisation software and optional C++ Library (for Linux or Windows) and ROS Node for developing software integration into user applications.
SLIM TACTILE SENSOR ARRAYS
Tactile sensor arrays
Tactile sensor arrays with soft silicone pillars with a robust aluminium casing
SINGLE TACTILE SENSORS
3D force tactile sensor
A soft tactile sensor that measures all three components of force. A development kit for the 3D Force Button Sensor (datasheet) is now available!
Force/Torque sensors are used throughout industry for product testing, robotic assembly, grinding and polishing. In research, force/torque sensors are used in robotic surgery, haptics, rehabilitation, neurology and many others applications.SEE OUR PRODUCTS
