tendon tension

A great tool in a
small footprint.

These miniature load cells can measure cable tension up to 80 N. In close collaboration with our suppliers, we were able to find a miniaturized solution to the problem of cable tension measurement.

It is now possible to instrument tendon-driven robots (such as IH2 Azzurra or iCub) allowing a closed-loop control of these systems, enabling for augmented grasping and manipulation. The sensors are available stand-alone or with acquisition electronics. The latter can be customized to fit your very own application.

Tech specs
