Torque

For industrial robots, cobots, exoskeletons who need to measure the torque applied on a shaft, Melexis brings a solution that is compact, stray-field immune and ideal for stiff shafts. Unlike other magneto-elasticity based systems, our innovation is fully integrated, cost effective and 3D field sensitive.

Force

For industrial robots and humanoids, who need the sense of touch to manipulate fragile objects, Melexis brings a tactile sensor. It is compact (5 mm x 5 mm x 5 mm), soft and provides the 3D force vector acting on the surface. Unlike optical tactile sensors using computer vision feedback, our force sensor is fully integrated and will be mass manufactured using semiconductor technology. It offers cost and reliability advantage.

Position & speed

For industrial robots, cobots, exoskeletons who need a 16-bit resolution and 12-bit accuracy sensor for their joint control, Melexis' angular sensing solution offers on-chip calibration, speed measurement and system scalability. Unlike other dual magnetic track angular sensors, we ease assembly tolerances and reduces the overall Bill-of-Material (BOM).
