ATI Gamma Force/Torque Sensor

This equipment enables force and torque sensing in order for robot manipulators to interact either with humans or with the physical environment. In ECR, we are developing physically interactive assistant robots to help people with finely skilled manipulations. The robotic assistants are usually admittance controlled, which means that the force/torque sensor attached to the end-effector captures the force/torque impact on the robot and then the end-point position/orientation is updated according to this force/torque reading. The ATI Force/Torque Sensor functions as a communication media of force interaction between our robots and humans or environment.
