What Is Dynamic Tactile Sensing?

When it comes to robots that are built to handle objects, tactile sensing is one of the keys to success. Obviously, it’s helpful for a robot to feel what it’s holding and understand its grasp position, so it can manipulate the object properly. But what you may not realize is that tactile information is not only about sensing static events, such as contact location or forces – it’s also about sensing dynamic events.

In this post, you’ll learn about the difference between dynamic and static sensing, and see why dynamic tactile sensing is so important.
