Abstract: A novel flexible tactile sensor using conductive rubber with electrical-wires knitted method is presented. The sensorís design is based on rubberís pressure-sensitive property. It is flexible and can be mounted on any object to measure tactile information. The mathematic piezoresistivity model of the rubber is described, and we also discuss the sensorís structure and scanning method. The simulation results show that the sensor can detect pressure accurately.

 

Keywords: Tactile sensor, Conductive rubber, Pressure-sensitive property, Flexibility
