A compliant tactile sensor (CTS) has been developed with two orthogonal layers of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) and polymer strips. This has enabled the detection of sliding motion along the surface of the sensor. This information is used to detect the motions of forces applied on the surface of the CTS. The speed of sliding motion in each direction can be updated with a resolution of 3mm in both of two perpendicular directions.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
