Conformable TactArray

Accurately measure and map pressures around curved surfaces

The Conformable TactArray is a ~1mm thick flexible sensor constructed from soft, conductive cloth and captures pressure distribution between two objects in direct physical contact. The Conformable TactArray can accommodate varying degrees of curvature and can output accurate, repeatable data even while wrapped around irregular shapes.

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Maintain high-resolution and capture quality data even around complex shapes

  • High resolution, sensitivity, and repeatability allow for consistent capture of accurate data

  • The sensors can capture a minimum sensing pressure of 10 Pascal

  • Save time and improve results through repeatable accuracy and less recalibration time needed

  • Available in a wide range of size configurations, pressure ranges, and resolutions

  • Comes standard with the powerful Chameleon Visualization Software

Constructed from soft, conductive cloth, the Conformable TactArray (CTA) is a flexible capacitive sensor array that can accommodate varying degrees of curvature. As a standalone sensor it can accommodate simple curvatures. We can also custom build it to be mounted on compound curvatures. Standalone, the cloth-like surface of the CTA is suitable for human skin contact and often integrated into a stretchable cloth band or a mask.
