FingerVision is a startup that develops technology to “estimating tactile sensation based on an image (captured by a camera).”By mounting the FingerVision sensor, which consists of a transparent soft skin (made of silicon rubber) and a small camera, on the fingertip of a robot hand, etc., it becomes possible to perceive tactile sensations (distribution of force, slippage, etc.) and realize control of a robot as if a person were handling an object using "palm" sensation.
