For use with robots, tactile sensors have been developed. When the robot starts to grasp an object, tactile sensors can supplement visual systems by adding further information. Eyesight is no longer sufficient at this point because vision alone cannot determine the mechanical characteristics of the object.
Tactile sensors are manufactured with light (optical), electricity, or magnetism and are responsive to touch, force, or pressure. The stimulus-to-response pathways used by electronic touch sensors to operate are analogous to the human body’s process of skin, nervous system signal transmission, and brain.
The global robot tactile sensor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
The GelSight Mini tactile sensor has been announced. A 3D sensor powered by artificial intelligence (AI) that can give robots a feeling of touch has been released by GelSight.
The sensor is robust enough to be used in robots and cobots, yet small enough to be comfortable in human hands. The sensor can deliver shareable data right out of the box in only five minutes.
GelSight set out to create a sensor that would provide roboticists the most versatility of any one available on the market. Roboticists now have access to digital 2D and 3D mapping thanks to the company’s sensor, which has a spatial resolution that is greater than that of the human hand.
This provides scientists with enhanced views of material surfaces that are applicable across a variety of businesses. The data collected by GelSight’s elastomeric tactile sensing platform, which makes use of the Robot Operating System (ROS), PyTouch, and Python, is used by the GelSight Mini.
As a result, users can produce precise surface characterizations that are fully compatible with their existing, well-known software environments.
The business offers ROS compatibility, frame grabbers, and Python scripts so users can start working on novel AI and computer vision tasks right immediately, such making digital twins of the objects that will be picked up by the sensor.
A variety of applications for GelSight Mini exist, ranging from the construction of bionic hands to two-finger grippers in the industrial style. Compactness of the sensor and integration adaptor 3D CAD files from GelSight make it simple to integrate into an existing system.
