In order to successfully perform object manipulation, humanoid robots must be equipped with tactile sensors. However, the limited space that is available in robotic fingers imposes severe design constraints. In [1] we presented a small prototype fingertip which incorporates a capacitive pressure system. This paper shows an improved version, which has been integrated on the hand of the humanoid robot iCub. The fingertip is 14.5 mm long and 13 mm wide. The capacitive pressure sensor system has 12 sensitive zones and includes the electronics to send the 12 measurements over a serial bus with only 4 wires. Each synthetic fingertip is shaped approximately like a human fingertip. Furthermore, an integral part of the capacitive sensor is soft silicone foam, and therefore the fingertip is compliant. We describe the structure of the fingertip, their integration on the humanoid robot iCub and present test results to show the characteristics of the sensor.
