The aim of this paper is to investigate implementations of carbon‐black filled silicone rubber for tactile sensation.
The sensor‐elements for this tactile sensing structure were made by press‐curing from carbon‐black filled silicone rubber.
The behaviour of the silicone rubber shows strong non‐linearity, therefore, the sensor cannot be used for accurate measurements. The greatest advantage of this material lies in its high elasticity.
A new method for artificial tactile sensing skin for robotic applications.
