Shadow Robot Company Ltd.
Britain’s longest-running robot company building next-generation robot hands and systems. Shadow is best known for its Dexterous Hand, the world’s most advanced robot hand, offering a similar degree of freedom to the human hand.
The company is also a pioneer in the fast-developing fields of teleoperation and telepresence with their Tactile Telerobot, where the Shadow Hand is combined with sensors and controlled via a haptic glove for touch feedback. Shadow’s technology is designed for researchers and to help humans in difficult or dangerous jobs – such as nuclear decommissioning, pharma labs, and remote maintenance tasks.
