Cambridge Consultants has developed Hank, a robot with flexible robotic fingers inspired by the human hand. Hank uses a pioneering sensory system embedded in its pneumatic fingers, providing a sophisticated sense of touch and slip, meaning it can emulate the human ability to hold and grip delicate objects using just the right amount of pressure. Hank could have valuable applications in agriculture and warehouse automation, where the ability to pick small, irregular and delicate items has been one of the industry’s “grand challenges”.
PanelPicker season is here! Our colleagues at Cambridge Consultants are teaming up with Nike and L'Oréal to talk about the future of personalized products & experiences this March in Austin.
