What are tactile sensors?

A NEW CALIBER OF PRESSURE Measurement AND MAPPING

Tactile sensing is the technology of mapping and measuring the contact mechanics between two objects. When searching for pressure measurement and mapping, you will come across two main technologies: capacitive sensors and resistive sensors. Resistive sensors work through measuring the resistance of a conductive material. Capacitive sensors are a newer technology and work through measuring the ability to store an electrical charge. Though more expensive to produce, capacitive sensors outcompete traditional resistive sensors in nearly every aspect including design flexibility, sensitivity, repeatability, and temperature stability. Tactile capacitive sensing, our specialty, represents the forefront of capacitive sensing.
