OptoForce is determined to revolutionize the tactile sensing of machines and haptic interaction between people and machines. The company works by studying how our own senses work and we find novel ways to engineer it into current appliances. OptoForce now works with robotic and prosthetic research labs, industrial automation engineers and specialists in human interface technologies to realize its vision. The company’s team includes several PhDs and Masters in all kinds of engineering fields. The patented OptoForce sensor technology is based on a radically new way of measuring forces. Compared to strain-gauge based load cells, OptoForce transducers are generally much more robust, as the deforming surfaces are physically separated from the sensing element.
