HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

1) Operators wearing the haptic gloves can control the robot hand at a safe distance, even in another room or vicinity.

2) The robot hand mimics your hand and arm movements, handling materials and completing tasks.

3) Sensors on the robot hand relay touch sensations back to the operator wearing the glove so you can now feel what the robot hand is touching without having to touch it with your own hands.

In a recent demo, the hand relayed touch information from over 5,000 miles away!

 

WHO IS IT FOR?

 

Anyone looking to:

Apply a tool for highly dexterous manipulation

Add a safety layer between the operator and the task

Increase productivity, efficiency and reliability

Optimise processes with advanced precision and accuracy

Reduce overall costs and deliver a project under budget
