A new miniaturised multi-axis force/torque sensors based on optoelectronic technology and simply-supported beam

This paper presents a methodology for the development of a multi-axis force/torque sensor based on optoelectronic technology. The advantages of using this sensing principle are the low manufacturing costs, the simple fabrication, and the immunity to electrical noise. The force/ torque sensor makes use of six optical sensors: each sensor measures the… (More)
