Our Technology

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.

Architecture

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.

Unidimensional Bending

PLYON® is our market-ready sensor solution originating from our unique sensorskin™ technology.
A PET based solution allows PLYON® to adapt to unidimensional curved surfaces without compromising any of its measuring capabilities.

Multidimensional Stretching

Using a polymer based, fully stretchable counter electrode, we add another dimension to the versatility of sensor solutions. Being flexible and fully stretchable, the sensor can be applied to any 3D-curved and malleable object.
