Barrett Hand is a multi-fingered programmable grasper with the dexterity to secure target objects of different sizes, shapes, and orientations. With 96 RoboTouch sensing elements, the BarrettHand can now detect exactly how much pressure its fingertips, grippers, and palms are exerting onto a surface.
JXJ needed a solution for measuring pulse and blood pressure in a health watch. They partnered with PPS to develop a watch embedded with PPS pulse sensors. PPS sensors do not require chest straps, enabling a watch that more-closely resembles stylish accessories rather than healthcare monitoring devices.
The TactileHead Pressure Measurement System is a measurement system that can assess the pressures (and therefore the comfort) of a given headphone or hearing protection design or configuration.
Using PPS’ patented, game changing tactile sensor technology called Capacitive Force Switch, automotive product designers can now add the force dimension to capacitive control buttons, and provide the reliability and durability of mechanical switches coupled with the sleek design, simple appearance, low cost and more sophisticated operation of capacitive switches.
