What Is a Force Torque Sensor?

Today’s robots have a wide range of applications, so it makes sense to introduce more object-sensing capability to them. That is the essence of a force torque (FT) sensor. An FT sensor is a device that is able to feel forces exerted in all directions. This eBook is about the main components and applications of such a sensor. It is divided into six chapters namely, Basic Principles, Functionalities, Applications, Specifications, FT Sensor Bundle for Universal Robots and ROS Package for FT Sensor.
