Electronic Tactile Sensor
The Xsensor electronic tactile force and pressure-indicating sensor allows precise monitoring of how force is disbursed between any two contacting or mating surfaces in real-time. The sensor is a Windows-based system, which consists of an electronic sensor element skin, an interface controller and software. The sensor skin essentially is a thin, flexible sheet, which is densely packed with sensing points, or pixels. The sensing points can be spaced as close as 1 mm (0.04 in.) apart and can collect data as rapidly as 50 readings per second. System requirements includeWindows 95/98/NT operating systems and 16-MB free disk space and 64 MB of RAM.
