Abstract
In this paper, we demonstrate a soft, flexible and stretchable dielectric elastomer (DE) capacitive compression mat, which is able to measure pressure/force and locations (multi-touch) simultaneously. This compression mat is composed of a multi-layer soft and stretchy DE sensor. This newly designed compression mat can be intergraded into robotic grippers to measure the grasping force and identify the contact points when picking up an object. It can also be used as a clinical measurement mat to help foot exercise treatments for diabetic patients’ ulcerated feet.
