Posted by Charbax – May 2, 2016

Tacterion is a spin-off from the German aerospace center at the Robotics and Mechatronics Center to develop tacterion, a new kind of tactile sensor. Tacterion offers polymer-based tactile sensors called Artificial Skin for Robotics, MedTech or as a new kind of input device in Human-Machine-Interaction in Smart Clothing. The rubber foil-like Artificial Skin sensor is connected to Tacterion's readout electronic component that translates physical interaction into data which digital systems can process.
