The makeup consists of a pattern of pressure sensitive and temperature sensitive layers on a printed flexible array sheet, arranging the pressure sensitive portions and the temperature sensitive portions at high density. The prototype sheet sensor has a thickness of about 0.3 mm and high flexibility. Detection area is 173 × 260 mm2 and contains 144 × 216 elements at a 1.2 mm pitch. Pressure range is 0 to 500 kPa, temperature range 20 to 50 ° C. One of the objectives is the realization of robot skins with human skin sensation. The prototype which will be on display at CeBit2017 was prepared by members of NEDO’s Next Generation Printed Electronics Technology Research Association.
