Sensing for Robotics & Automation

Microstrain's groundbreaking micro-sensor solutions offer an unmatched combination of lightweight, low-profile performance ideal in robotics and automation, where weight and space constraints are critical to achieve optimal performance. As robotics and automatic processes become increasingly critical in our everyday lives - whether on the manufacturing floor, in our homes, or in robotic delivery platforms - the need for cost effective, highly accurate, and highly reliable performance becomes paramount.

MicroStrain's feature-rich sensor designs deliver the reliability and accuracy needed to incorporate sophisticated capabilities into autonomous devices and robotic instruments, and offer easy integration with ROS (robot operating system support).
