Short summary
Soft pressure sensors fabricated by means of carbon-based material and polymers have the potential to sense pressure starting from 2 g to 18 kg. Such pressure sensors also exhibit high sensitivity, high durability, easy integration and long-term stability. These sensors can be integrated into robotic parts like fingers and feet to monitor the grasping force and the gait of the robot respectively.
Soft pressure sensors fabricated by means of carbon-based material and polymers have the...
