The growth driver for the tactile sensor in our ever-connected world

For those who are unfamiliar, Tactile sensor can be defined as a device that measures information arising from physical interaction with its environment. Tactile sensors can be used to sense a diverse range of stimulus ranging from detecting the presence or absence of a grasped object to a complete tactile image. A tactile sensor consists of an array of touch sensitive sites; the sites may be capable of measuring more than one property.

According to Research and Markets, globally, increasing adoption of automation and robotics in industrial applications is expected to remain the growth driver for the tactile sensor during 2016-2022.
