Chinese researchers have developed a pressure sensor with ultra-high sensitivity and fast response time.
The new wearable pressure sensor is capable of monitoring real-time pulse waves and act as artificial skin for robots' hands to detect weak pressure changes.
It was designed with a low detection limit, and the response time of the new pressure sensor is less than one millisecond.
"Our sensor can feel the pressure of light objects such as feathers or rice, and it can transform the pressure into electricity," said Chen Ming, a researcher of the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
The researchers developed the high-performance wearable pressure sensor based on microstructured electrodes, according to the article published in the scientific journal American Chemical Society (ACS) Applied Materials and Interfaces.
It has great application promise in the fields of biomedicine, real-time health monitoring and artificial intelligence.
