TO108680

TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

A tactile sensing glove embedded with multiple tactile sensors can measure each sensing point’s applied pressure and its corresponding position. Its pressure sensing layer is constructed with multiple rows and columns of piezoresistive sensing points. The piezoresistive sensor’s electrical resistance decreases when a pressure is applied on it. The tactile sensing glove can be put on a robotic gripper or prosthetic device to receive haptic feedback during manipulation tasks.
