The purpose of this paper is to review an innovative approach to pressure mapping.
The paper takes the form of a detailed dialog with developer and supplier, Sensor Products, and review of numerous applications of the technology.
Real‐time pressure mapping adds an entirely new solution to applications where single‐point pressure measurement does not provide the information required.
Researchers and product developers now have available a technology which provides information not previously available in real time. Point pressure measurement is a well‐established technology. Sensor Products moves pressure measurement light years ahead by bringing real‐time pressure mapping technology to the market with its Tactilis® system. The system offers an “electronic skin” which captures records and interprets both pressure distribution and magnitude over the sensor field.
Researchers will learn of an innovative sensor technology, which may solve problems they have had no answer for in the past.
