A customer needed to power up and then power down a smartphone. As an added complication, the smartphones were from a variety of manufacturers creating different configurations of physical buttons: one on each side, all on one side, one on the back or underside of the phone.
Tapster PBR (Push Button Robot) employs an adjustable jig with sliding grips and micro servos to adapt to the specific, unique configuration of the smartphone, even if the buttons are on the underside of the phone.
Note: the PBR adjustable jig is often combined with other Tapster robots to add physical button pushing capabilities.
- Sliding mounts, grips, and servo-powered actuators allow multiple configurations to press top, side, or back buttons of any mobile device.
- Easily combines with most other Tapster robots
- Ships assembled, tested, and ready to go

While the core benefit of PBR is it’s adjustability, many clients choose to combine PBR with one of the other Tapster Robots to add button push to touchscreen tapping.
