In this demo video, Kitronyx Snowboard 2 works well with Raspberry Pi, which clearly shows that Kitronyx force sensing system can be a good solution for IoT factory automation.
We've implemented multi-touch trackpad. Multi-touch recognition and multi-touch drawing software has been also built. In the video, you can see that our multi-touch demo system correctly recognizes multiple touches and simultaneous drawing.
All of our new Snowboard 2 products are ready!
Snowboard 2 is an entry level force and tactile sensor HDK (Hardware Development Kit). It is designed to work with FSR matrix sensors as well as resistive type matrix sensors.
By purchasing the Snowboard 2 you actually get
- Force sensing controller (sensor is not included)
- Snowboard 2 is an all-in-one force sensing development platform
- Multiple point force sensing without crosstalk for entry level pressure mapping, pressure distribution sensing, and tactile sensing applications
- Works standalone and as an Arduino Shield (Arduino is not included)
NOTE: Snowboard 2 outputs digital values which are proportional to the applied pressure. In order to get physical pressure values, user calibration is required.
MP2509 10x16 FSR Matrix Sensor Evaluation Kit with MS9758 Large Sensor
MP2509 is a Hardware Development Kit (HDK) to help you build your own relative pressure mapping systems and tactile sensing systems
This product is carefully designed for researcher and engineers who needs pressure mapping sensor, electronics, and SDK but suffer from limited budget.
This HDK contains:
IMPORTANT NOTE: This HDK outputs raw ADC (Analog to Digital Conversion) values which are changed according to applied pressure. For absolute pressure distribution measurement, a calibration process in user's side is required. Kitronyx provides an exemplary simple calibration method here. It should be emphasized that there are many calibration algorithms for FSR matrix sensors and measurement performance follows the utilized calibration method.
We devloped insole type matrix pressure sensors that can be compatible with Snowboard. It has more than a hundred sensing nodes so very precise foot pressure mapping can be obtained. Enjoy!
In this post, we share our new sensors - very fine pitch sensors. Kitronyx MC1509 and a new super multi-channel controllers are used to measure pressure data from these fine pitch pressure sensors.
This demo shows pressure data while a user is writing on Kitronyx force pressure touch sensor.
Kitronyx is an engineering company that provides development tools and engineering design services to individuals, companies, universities and government agencies based on expertise in force, pressure, and multi-touch technologies. Our focus is on providing the ‘closest to complete’ technology to enable customers to rapidly turn ideas into real products.
MC1509 is a force touch controller that is designed for easy development of pressure mapping application. Kitronyx supplies compatible matrix array sensors (MS9705, MS9712, MS9711) as well. The combination of these components can be regarded as pressure mapping HDK (Hardware Development Kit) and is the perfect tool to evaluate Kitronyx force pressure sensing technologies. In addition, carefully designed SDK makes our solution suitable for anyone who wants to develop his/her own pressure mapping applications.
In this post, we shows one possible application of MC1509 and MS9705 - tire pressure mapping.
In the video below, our products are used to capture tire footprint pressure patterns. Dynamic and static tire footprints are measured and displayed by using MC1509 force controller and MS9705 FSR matrix sensor.
