Virtual Feel Capaciflectors (GSC-14955)
General purpose is to empower a tool, manipulated by a robot and using capactivie sensing, to precisely locate and seat over a mating fastener without contact. A minimum number of sensors are used (typically 2 or 3) along with a minimum of I/Os (input/ouput leads). Controlled motions and resulting induced charge movements on the tool/fastener contact surfaces provide the effect of large pixel number arrays. The effect is analogous to non-contact feel, hence "virtual feel".
