About Bota Systems

We give robots the sense of touch.

Bota Systems' vision is for robots to work and move safely and as natural and free as humans.

 

As a developer and manufacturer of multi-axis force-torque sensors, torque sensors, and custom sensors, we are diligent about providing the best force-torque sensing solutions and user care experience. 

 

Our team of accomplished robotic, software, and mechanical engineers continually develops highly-integrated and advanced sensors to support a wide range of applications.

 

Whether used for research or industry, we aim to streamline the process.
