The sensorskin™ technology contains our unique polymer structure and provides a high level of touch and pressure sensitivity. Our solutions are extremely durable and flexible or even stretchable. Thus, we can deploy our technology on surfaces of 3D-curved and even malleable objects giving them a sense of touch. We provide ready to use tactile sensor solutions that can be seamlessly integrated into any product. As there is no single mechanical component, the technology is optimized for environments that require products to be highly sensitive and overload-proof at the same time.
The sensors measure both projected capacitance and electrical transfer resistivity. They are composed of two layers, a structure electrode and a counter electrode. The structure electrode contains conductive polymers, while the counter electrode is interchangeable and therefore a defining element of each sensor solution. Both electrodes are connected to a read-out electronic for translating measurements into readable data.
