sensorskin is made of tough and flexible electrodes in combination with a unique silicone polymer structure, making it highly touch and pressure sensitive, still fully strechtable and durable at the same time. Thus, we can deploy sensorskin on surfaces of 3D-curved and even malleable and soft objects for making those touch and pressure sensitive. The layered structure is manufactured in a continuous Roll-to-Roll process and are cut out for individual market applications. The technology is optimized for environments that require the products to be highly sensitive and overload proof at the same time due to not using a single mechanical component. We provide ready to use tactile sensor solutions that are seamlessly integrated into any product. Right now we are framing two sensorskin models — sensorskin C. for Human Machine Interactions and sensorskin R. for detailed pressure distribution measurements.
sensorskin C. is based on projected capacitance. Conductive objects like your fingertip can be detected even at a distance, enabling the same touch interaction experience users have grown to expect of today’s high end smart devices. Unlike other solutions the stretchable base materials applied in sensorskin C. allow for the application on the surface of 3D-curved and malleable objects.
sensorskin R. is based on the measurement of electrical transfer resistivity. Intersecting conductive electrodes are arranged on two layers. They form an array of tactile sensitive elements called taxels. If deformed, the top and bottom layer of the sensor come into physical contact. As the sensor is compressed further, the contact surface will increase and the resulting change in transfer resistivity can be measured.
