Paper Abstract

As the development of intelligent robots, more and more sensors of higher-technique are required, and tactile sensing technology gets extensively attention. It is the three-axis force that is working when the robot is grasping or walking, but it is quite difficult to measure the three-axis force directly in the numerous tactile sensors. To get the contact-alike nonlinear solution in FEA(Finite Element Analysis), an advanced analysis method of ANSYS - APDL(Advanced Program Description Language) is employed, with which the miscellaneous and time-consuming process is automatically completed in an intelligent way. This paper introduces a series of simulation experiments about an innovative optical wave-guided three-axis tactile sensing system and brings forward the corresponding mathematical model to calculate the three-axis force. A special sensing system is designed for the experiments, and the results considerably conform to the theoretical analysis. Thus, a new method comes into being for tactile sensing of intelligent robots.
