High-density 3-axis tactile sensors
Our company developed uSkin, a high-density 3-axis tactile sensor in a thin, soft, durable package with minimal wiring. uSkin can be easily integrated into both new and existing robots.
We offer a wide range of sensors for various applications, and we can also customise the sensor to meet your specific needs.
Our sensors are available in different categories, each with a specific purpose.
Choose the ideal sensor for you application or contact us to develop your own customised uSkin model.
Every sensor module includes multiple sensors, and every sensor can measure 3-axis force, not only perpendicular force.
The uSkin 4x4 is one of our most popular models and includes 16 individual sensing points. These sensor points (or taxels) mimic a joystick, measuring X, Y, and Z force:
• Shear forces (X, Y) tangential to the surface
• Normal force (Z) perpendicular to the surface
Providing you with a more detailed and accurate data collection.

Faster & More Accurate
Most sensors require various cables and large-sized analogue-to-digital converting hardware.
uSkin already provides digital output. Only a few thin wires are needed to collect the measurements, and no additional analogue-to-digital converter is required.
uSkin utilises digital output to provide you with faster, more accurate measurements with minimal electric noise and interference.

Reliable and Robust
uSkin is a soft sensor capable of handling fragile objects without damaging them. Objects of different sizes, shapes, hardness, and weight can be grasped and manipulated reliably.
The softness of uSkin also ensures that the sensor is highly resilient to overloading, making uSkin very durable. Another feature that the “Soft Skin” adds to the sensor is the ability to conform to the object that your robotic solution is trying to grasp.

(for uS11 model)
Typical robotic sensors are cumbersome and require extensive customisation for integration.
XELA Robotics provides tactile skin sensors that can easily be integrated and do not require any proprietary connectors.
With a wide array of options available, our sensors can simply be glued on or attached with brackets.
Our sensors can have interference from nearby magnetic fields. Using our patented technology, we remove this interference by using reference measurements.
Only available on some models.
Removes measurement drift caused by temperature changes.
Our sensor has a built-in temperature sensor that can be used to automatically retain the measurements when the temperature changes.
Detailed Data Collection
XELA Robotics offers two options for calibration. Both calibration options give the user more control over the grasped object and enable uSkin to measure force in Newton, enabling you, for example, to grasp objects with a predetermined force.
Get Your Quotation
Comparing the price of uSkin with our competitors, our product is much more affordable without compromising its performance.
The outer shell serves the purpose of protection but can be modified for different applications.
Soft elastomer ensures that the sensor is highly resilient to overloading, which makes uSkin very durable.
Another feature that the “Soft Skin” adds to the sensor is the ability to conform to the object that your robotic solution is trying to grasp
The Chip recognises displacement in three dimensions.
Each sensor module includes a multitude of these chips, and each chip can measure 3D displacement individually.
