The designed sensor can detect 2D surface texture image, contact-force, and softness of the sensed object. It consists of a chamber for pneumatic actuation and a membrane with a mesa structure. The sensing mechanism is the contact deformation effect of a membrane. Determination of the contact force and softness of sensed object is based on the amount and variations of the out-of-plane deflection at the center of a circular membrane. This versatility facilitates the use of the sensor in smart
more &raquo; ... lications where tactile information is used to create intelligent system. The proposed sensor is suitable for using in medical applications, especially in minimally invasive surgery (MIS).
