Name

NumaTac Customizable Sensors

Manufacturer Syntouch
Applications

The NumaTac™ distills the features BioTac sensor that are most useful for robotic dexterity into a new class of sensors. This patent pending technology consists of a spongy core surrounded by an elastic skin. Its sensitivity to contact events and highly compliant surface make it ideal for fingertips that handle delicate objects.

NumaTac technology can be easily designed and inexpensively manufactured to cover large and complex areas such as hands, feet, limbs or trunk. It eliminates insensitive dead spots and vulnerable edges. It absorbs the energy of collisions, providing valuable time for evasive maneuvers to spare the robot (and the world!) from serious damage.

Name

Dynamic Vision Sensor (DVS)

Manufacturer Inilabs
Applications

Conventional vision sensors see the world as a series of frames. Successive frames contain enormous amounts of redundant information, wasting memory access, RAM, disk space, energy, computational power and time. In addition, each frame imposes the same exposure time on every pixel, making it difficult to deal with scenes containing very dark and very bright regions.

The Dynamic Vision Sensor (DVS) solves these problems by using patented technology that works like your own retina. Instead of wastefully sending entire images at fixed frame rates, only the local pixel-level changes caused by movement in a scene are transmitted – at the time they occur. The result is a stream of events at microsecond time resolution, equivalent to or better than conventional high-speed vision sensors running at thousands of frames per second. Power, data storage and computational requirements are also drastically reduced, and sensor dynamic range is increased by orders of magnitude due to the local processing.
