The sense of touch is required for human dexterity, but has been absent in robotics. Tangible Research brings expertise in robotics and haptics to deliver solutions incorporating touch to a wide range of industries.
Our team has professional research and product development experience covering biomedical, mechanical, electrical and software engineering, machine learning, data analytics, neurobiology, biomimicry, life sciences, and much more. We can offer services from professional guidance, prototyping, to full spectrum solution development & implementation.
Control and feel a pair of robotic hands as if they were your own
This work brought together several advanced robotic components to deliver the highest fidelity telerobotic experience possible: HaptX gloves capture hand motion with precision and deliver realistic tactile and force feedback, Shadow Robotic Company's anthropomorphic Dexterous Hand mimics human motion with 24 degrees of freedom, and SynTouch's biomimetic sensors capture force, temperature, pressure, and vibration with equal resolution to a human finger.
When combined, these components allow the telerobot to capture and control motion, manipulate fragile or rigid objects with precision, and give the user control through tactile feedback. For more information, visit the Tactile Telerobot Website
It was fitting that a technology designed to bring people together was developed with an internationally distributed team of world leaders in robotics, tactile feedback, and bio-inspired design.
