Design News: Capacitive Tactile Sensors Solve Myriad Challenges

One of the main strengths of capacitive tactile sensing technology is its ability to help people access information that would otherwise be impossible to capture. Consider, for example, a sensor-equipped motility catheter that can create a high-resolution pressure map detailing the functionality of a person’s esophagus from within. Of course, optimizing such powerful technology often requires a certain level of expertise and experience and can be more complicated than might first be apparent. To put it bluntly, it’s not as simple as slapping some sensors on a product and calling it a day, a fact illustrated by the complexity of integrating tactile sensors into sports gear.
