Rokubi Overview

What is Rokubi?

Robuki's Rokubi FT sensor is an excellent choice for a variety of applications due to its compact design, robust structure, and versatile features. With a weight of only 120g, this small form factor sensor is perfect for use in rehabilitation, robotic surgery, polishing, sanding, and other fine mechanics tasks.

This force-torque sensor is equipped with integrated signal processing electronics, a 6 DoF IMU, and temperature sensors, all housed in a compact package. It can measure on 6 axes with 6 DoF IMU (available only with EtherCAT communication), providing direct force and torque data in N and Nm. The sensor is also resistant to dust, water, and extreme environments, making it an ideal choice for outdoor and industrial applications.

The Rokubi FT sensor is compatible with a range of software platforms, including TwinCAT, ROS, LabVIEW, and MATLAB, which makes it easy to integrate into existing systems. Additionally, the sensor comes with complete installation kits for use with Kinova Jaco, making integration with this popular robotic arm easy.

One of the significant advantages of Robuki's Rokubi FT sensor is its open-source software compatibility, which enables users to customize and adjust the sensor's settings and functionalities according to their needs. The sensor is also CE compliant, ensuring that it meets the high-quality standards required for European markets.

Finally, the sensor is equipped with overload protection and high-stiffness structure, which means that it can withstand high impact forces and will not deform even under heavy loads. Overall, the Robuki Rokubi FT sensor is an excellent choice for those looking for a versatile, compact, and robust force-torque sensor for a wide range of applications.

I work as a postdoctoral research fellow in orthopaedic engineering. I have built a custom rig that I was then looking for a multi-axial load cell that was affordable and that was easy to use. A fellow researcher in robotics recommended that I get in touch with BOTA Systems, a robotics company that also focuses on force sensing applications. I was immediately contacted by a BOTA representative, who promptly briefed me on a great range of load cells. They also met with me multiple times to help integrate the BOTA Medusa multi-axial load cell with my rig and existing code, custom design all required accessories. I was incredibly impressed with the "ease of use" of the highly integrated product, accessories, software and customer support, the incredible value for money and would highly recommend BOTA Systems force sensors and the team.

I used this sensor in a custom-built testbed for measuring wheel-soil interaction forces.
The sensor was easy to mount and use, and support from the team was excellent when I had software issues. It was easy to use the sensor with ROS, and the data quality was very good.
The sensor takes 30-45 minutes to warm up to a steady temperature, and force measurements drift with temp, so you have to turn on the machine well in advance of data collection. The cable that came with our sensor was also fragile and needed to have strain relief added.
