Paper Abstract

This paper presents a stretchable proximity-tactile sensor (PTS) using Carbon Micro Coils (CMC). The PTS consists of pairs of multiple active electrodes and a common ground electrode on the same plane. Thus, the sensor is tolerable to the repetitive contacts from external forces. The top layer consists of dielectric elastomer substrate mixed with 5% of CMC, so that it can respond to the proximity and tactile stimuli. Electrodes are located under the top layer and optimally organized to reduce the number of wirings. The sensor is fabricated by molding and casting methods. As the result, a 4 × 4 sensor prototype is made and its performance are experimentally evaluated.
