Robotics Technologies


tacterion is a high-tech sensor company based in Munich. It was founded in 2015 as a spin-off of the German Aerospace Center (DLR). tacterion develops and markets the unique tactile sensor technology called sensorskin. sensorskin is a highly flexible sensory layer that measures interaction and pressure on any surface. This patented technology was originally developed to give robots the sense of touch. Now we bring it to more and more products and machines. sensorskin is highly stretchable, extremely robust and can be applied to complex and deformable surfaces. The sensorskin modules are integrated into industrial applications as well as in consumer products. We bring multi-touch-style interaction to any surface. Product designers can offer a more natural and individual user experience than ever before - driven by haptics. The integration of these tactile sensors will enable entirely new functionality for end-users. tacterion enables B2B customers to create human-centered products that revolutionize the way we interact with technology. Morevoer increases in efficiency in industry 4.0 applications are enabled. The target markets are Robotics, MedTech, Automotive and Human-Machine-Interaction in Consumer Electronics (e.g. touching objects in VR). Our first customer is BOSCH. We are in talks with Sony, Samsung, Audi and other world leading companies. tacterion’s team combines high-tech research and engineering with agile start-up culture and market orientation. It's our mission to support B2B customers in their ambition of creating revolutionary products.
