The BeBop Sensors RoboSkin reference design offers roboticists a look into how soft, flexible, sensing can be integrated into complex or organic forms and unlock new dimensions of machine intelligence. If you believe in a world where more human-like robots will live and work side by side with us, you can now focus on shaping robots for our world instead of shaping the world for our robots.
The first reference design is a distal finger joint – one of the most important sensory interfaces of the human body. Fabric sensing is uniquely suited for high density, dynamic, and repeatable response from the complex shape of a human finger. A visualization and control application allows users to explore the responsive behavior and tune to their requirements.
