SynTouch sensors enable machines to achieve humanlike tactile awareness, perception and dexterity. Their BioTac® and BioTac SP sensors are the most biomimetic tactile devices in the world, and have been integrated onto nearly all robotics research platforms. Their NumaTac® sensors have been used to improve prosthetic hands and personal assistive robotic arms.
