Abstract

A novel parallel plate capacitive tactile sensor design has been proposed which for the same deflection of the top electrode shows manifold improvement in sensitivity over present designs. Using a dielectric droplet leads to a simultaneous change in the capacitance area and gap leading to enhanced sensitivity. The proposed design is validated through modelling and experiments.
