Touchplus Information Corp.
Touchplus Information Corp’s patented polygon high sensitivity method provides floating capacitive sensing. This sensor is accurate within 2 cm on the sensing surface. It has practical applications in robotics with robotic humanoids and pets. A robotic pet covered with fake fur will benefit from the floating sensors as it allows consumers to solely pet the fur and not the sensors underneath it. It is also valuable when wearing gloves. Any material obscuring the sensor won’t hinder it. A practical application would be with drunk driving. When the drunk driver’s hands hold the wheel in an erratic manner, the sensor can catch it.
