Triaxial pressure and shear (TRIPS)
sensor system

A platform interface sensor system capable of measuring multidirectional forces, i.e. pressure (vertical) and shear (parallel) forces of contacting interfaces. The system benefits from:

  • Real-time/dynamic feedback
  • High resolution and linearity
  • Robustness
  • Wireless communication for wearability
  • Thin and flexible contact sensors for comfort
