uSCu | Collaboration with IIT

This fingertip was specifically designed for the fingertips of iCub, a child-sized humanoid robot by IIT. This collaboration with IIT showcases our ability to create tailored designs for our customers.

Please note:

We were exclusively responsible for the design and development of the small fingertip section, which can be viewed on the left, ensuring seamless integration with the original iCub fingertip.

While this particular fingertip design is not available for sale, it demonstrates our ability to produce custom solutions, including small-sized fingertips. While we can design something similar for your robot, replicating this exact design is not possible due to our exclusive collaboration agreement with IIT.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.


Since our sensors are highly customisable and different for each individual application, the price varies.

Microcontroller Details

In addition to our sensor modules, you also need uSmc (microcontrollers) to read our sensor signals.
Cable Lengths (in cm)
30, 50, 90 (between sensor and uSmc)
Connection Options
Up to 10 uSPa 11, uSPa 21 and uSPa 22 can be connected to the same uSmc with our custom break out board.

Each uSPa 44 and uSPa 46 needs its own uSmc.
Connecting to PC
Up to 15 uSmc can be daisy chained (connected one to the other), and only one of them needs to be connected to the PC with a CAN2USB converter. 

For Windows and LINUX, we currently suggest the esd CAN-USB/2. If you only require LINUX, we recommend the VScom USB-CAN Plus.
