This paper deals with a simulation model of slip displacement sensors for the object slip signals’ registration in the adaptive robot’s gripper. The study presents the analysis of different methods for slip displacement signals detection, as well as authors’ solutions. Special attention is paid to the investigations of the developed sensor with the resistive registration element in rod type structure of sensitive elements, which is able to operate in harsh and corrosive environments. A sensing system for the object slip signals’ registration in the adaptive robot’s gripper with a clamping force correction is developed for proposed slip displacement sensor with multi-component resistive registration elements. The hardware implementation of the sensing system for slip signals’ registration and obtained results are considered in details. The simulation model of the proposed slip displacement sensor based on polytypic conductive rubber is modeled by Proteus software. The intelligent approaches with the use of a field programmable gate array (FPGA) and VHDL-model to the sensing system designing allow to define the slippage direction in slip displacement sensor based on resistive registration elements. Thus, this expands the functionality of the developed sensor.
