Development Kit

Ideal for research and development

The PapillArray Tactile Sensor Development Kit (Beta) is a system of two PapillArray Tactile Sensor (3 x 3) arrays and a Communications Hub. 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 Communications Hub supplies power to two sensors and coordinates the simultaneous data acquisition from two PapillArray Tactile Sensors; i.e., coordinates sampling of the 18 pillars of the two sensors connected to the Communications Hub. The Development Kit is shipped with a calibration file for each sensor, as well as visualisation software and a C++ Library for developing software control algorithms using the sensor signals.
