End effectors that can 'feel': Composite layup with integrated tactile sensing

Real time defect detection during composite layup is achieved by integrating Tactile sensing into a layup end effector
Real time defect detection during composite layup is achieved by integrating Tactile sensing into a layup end effector. It is based on the ‘TacTip’, a tactile shape sensor developed by the Bristol Robotics Laboratory.
