Why do robots need contact detection?

Working in an unpredictable environment requires a wide set of sensors which imitate human senses. Thanks to the contact detection ability (which slightly resembles human sense of touch), robots can detect contacts to provide proper process conditions on a production line or to avoid unexpected collisions with objects (or people). The most popular solution in industrial arms is a force/torque sensor mounted between a robot tip and a gripper. It’s a multi-directional strain gauge which gives us data about forces affecting the gripper.

This solution gives us very accurate data, but what if something…
