Silicone sensors give robot fingers sense of touch | Wired.co.uk


curated by | July 16, 2014

“When pressure is applied to the surface of one of the sensors, their pliable half-sphere shape is slightly deformed, an action which instantly changes this distribution of infrared light from the LED inside. Photodiodes at the base of the sensor pick this up so that a clever piece of software may calculate the deformation and, therefore, the force currently being exerted on the sensors by an object.”
