From the operating room to the manufacturing floor, the robotic industry continues to grow and mature. As demand for robotic devices increases, so do the technology requirements.

Robots depend on a variety of sensors to interact effectively with the physical environment. Thin, flexible force sensors enable applications from appropriate grip force for accurate handling of delicate objects to helping a humanoid robot maintain a steady balance and gait.

This white paper covers these applications and more. It also provides a look at the underlying sensor technology and discusses important considerations in designing sensors into a robotic application.
