Thin Film Flexible and Stretchable Pressure Sensing Mat
The company's pressure mat can sense applied pressure and its corresponding position on a flat or curved surface. Its pressure sensing layer is constructed with multiple rows and columns of piezoresistive sensor points. The piezoresistive sensor’s electrical resistance decreases when a pressure is applied to it. There is a certain relationship between a sensor point’s resistance and the applied pressure on it. By measuring each sensor point’s electrical resistance, the applied pressures at all the sensor points can be derived. The pressure mat can also be made stretchable to suit some applications.
