Fingertip shaped design
Spend your robot a sense of touch
The tactile finger tip sensor WTS-FT 0408 integrates an active sensing matrix with 8 x 4 cells, the complete signal conditioning and processing electronics as well as an USB communication interface, providing a very compact sensing module with unrivalled performance. Its small form factor and the simple 4-wire cabling allow the use in even human sized robotic hands.
Integrated sensor controller
Put a complete tactile sensor system into a fingertip
To simplify software integration, the WTS-FT tactile sensor provides a standard virtual serial port over USB, removing the need for additional drivers under major operating systems. The powerful and well documented command set eases the integration into both existing and new applications. With the free software tool “WTS Commander”, containing a data visualization, a command editor and a communication log, Weiss Robotics provides a powerful tool for evaluating the tactile sensing technology.
