The SynTouch Story
Founded in 2008 and headquartered in Los Angeles, SynTouch is the world leader in Machine Touch®, the robotic equivalent for the most human of our five senses. Our proprietary characterization system, the SynTouch Standard®, quantifies the tactile qualities of materials and consumer products with more accuracy than human experts, and has been used for product design and quality control by leading manufacturers around the world. Our Tactile Evaluation Instrument reproduces both the mechanical properties and sensory modalities of human fingertips, allowing us to measure how products feel in all the same dimensions that your customers can perceive.
Our sensors enable machines to achieve humanlike tactile awareness, perception and dexterity. Our BioTac® and BioTac SP sensors are the most biomimetic tactile devices in the world, and have been integrated onto nearly all robotics research platforms. Our NumaTac® sensors have been used to improve prosthetic hands and personal assistive robotic arms. Our consulting and research teams look forward to developing Machine Touch for your applications.
