PRESSURE PROFILE SYSTEMS
At PPS, we leverage and enhance capacitive tactile sensing technology and pressure mapping solutions to empower our customers to develop innovative, meaningful products that harness the sense of touch for medical devices, robotics, automotive applications, and industrial and consumer products.
RoboTouch for Twendy-OneLast but certainly not least, PPS worked with Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan to embed high performance tactile sensors into the hands of their famous human symbiotic robot, Twendy-One. She can pick up a loaf of bread without crushing it, serve toast, and even crack an egg. This dexerity and "gentle touch" (minimal grasp force) can be attributed to the 241 RoboTouch sensors integrates into each of Twendy-One's hands.
Spray Pattern Sensor SystemThe Spray Pattern Sensor System is a large, high-speed sensor mat designed to visualize and characterize accumulated fluid deposition information for spray or coating processes. This easy-to-use, real-time system captures spray pattern information and is ideal for spray nozzle manufacturers.
Pulse Sensor Development KitMedical researchers and product developers have long desired a simple, non-invasive means of capturing high-fidelity pulse waveform data. Existing systems were limited either to simply capturing a pulse rate or required cumbersome equipment. The simplest solution would be to just press a probe against the skin of the wrist, similar to how we measure the pulse with our fingers. With PPS technology, that simple solution is now a reality.

PPS Product Overview
Capacitive Tactile Sensing
Our patented tactile sensors capture pressure mapping data by measuring capacitance, which is the ability to store an electrical charge. Over the past two decades, PPS sensor technology delivered valuable insights to many applications that involved contact pressures and pressure mapping in areas of product design, process optimization and research and development. Integrating PPS tactile sensors, either in the final product or during the development process, empowers engineers and researchers to capture “the sense of touch” and create more innovative products.
