Conventional tactile sensors can only detect simple physical values such as pressure, but can hardly measure multi-directional movements in touch with the surface of objects. We propose a soft tactile sensor using an Ionic Polymer-Metal Composite (IPMC or known as ICPF). IPMC is excellent in softness, durability, easy molding, and so on. Many applications have been developed using as IPMC actuators. IPMC can also utilized as a sensor, because a voltage on the both ends of the film changes by… CONTINUE READING
