TakkTile Kit for Robotiq Three-Fingered Gripper



TakkTile Kit for Robotiq Three-Fingered Adaptive Gripper provides cost-effective, sensitive and robust tactile sensing.


*Cost does not include a TakkTile sensors board for the palm of the hand, which can be purchased at an additional cost ofr $600.

Get started with the TakkTile kit for Robotiq tutorial.


Each TakkTile Kit for the three-fingered Robotiq adaptive gripper includes:

  • 3 × modular finger tips with TakkTile sensor boards, with an array of 6 sensors per board

  • 1 × communication board

  • Optional at additional cost: 1 × palm board with TakkTile sensors with an array of 18 sensors




  • The sensor shape was designed to match the shape of the fingertip.

  • Dedicated fingertips featuring embedded sensors replace the original finger tips from the manufacturer.

  • The wiring is mounted on the back of the finger and connects into the communication board.

  • The palm board is mounted using original screws.




  • The communication board is a custom I2C bridge between the sensors and USB. Sampling speed 100Hz.

  • Arduino (not provided) can also function as I2C to USB interface. Sampling speed 20Hz.




  • Communication board is supported for Ubuntu only.

  • Arduino interface can be used with Ubuntu, Windows and Mac OS.

  • ROS package is provided.
