Enabling physical human-robot interaction

PULSAR HRI develops best-in-class actuation systems to enable future robotic capabilities. Our goal is to providing the absolute best performance in motors and actuators, defining performance with novel metrics including agility, torque and efficiency.

PULSAR HRI provides the most agile, efficient and torque-dense motors and QDD actuators for robotic applications

Torque Motors

We offer a wide range of torque motors specifically designed for highly-dynamic robotic applications. 

Our P-series motors have been designed not only to produce the highest torque density, but to provide it for longer time, allowing for up to 25% duty cycle time at peak torque.

Our digital twin (AUGUR®) allows us to explore thousands of design possibilities and provide the absolute best performance for dynamic scenarios. We bring you the opportunity of tailor-made motors with our generative design tool. 

Our motors

QDD Actuators

Our PULSE actuators provide a perfect actuation balance, with the dynamics of a direct drive and the torque density of high gear ratio actuators (usually harmonic drive).

High bandwidth (70Hz) and torque density (50Nm/kg), with low backlash (6 arcmin) and backdrive torque (0,37Nm). They integrate dual encoder and our proprietary torque sensing technology for best-in-class proprioception.
