Abstract

This work presents current research achievements on POSFET sensing arrays based tactile sensing system. The tactile sensing chips implement POSFET (Piezoelectric Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor) devices arrays and temperature sensors. This work presents quantitative evaluation of the tactile sensing chip and a proposal for the electronic data acquisition system. Our goal is to integrate the POSFET arrays into the hands of humanoid robots.
