Title
(EN) CAPACITIVE FORCE SENSOR
(FR) CAPTEUR DE FORCE CAPACITIVE
Abstract
(EN) The present invention is a capacitive force sensor which has a force sensing detector (20) formed from a plurality of conducting plates (30, 32, 34), dielectric layers (22, 24), a variable feedback providing circuit (46), insulating plates (36, 38) for housing the force sensing detector, and the feedback providing circuit. The detector provides a signal to the circuit in response to pressure, and the circuit provides feedback output in response to the signal from the force sensing detector. The housing can take the form of a squeeze ball (80), a squeeze cylinder (90), a hitting target (110), a baseball glove (180), a golf glove (200), or can be implemented as part of an actual grip (190), such as for a golf club.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un capteur de force capacitive comprenant un détecteur (20) de force formé de plusieurs plaques conductrices (30, 32, 34), des couches diélectriques (22, 24), un circuit de rétroaction (46), des plaques isolantes (36, 38) destinées à loger le détecteur de force et le circuit de rétroaction. Le détecteur envoie un signal au circuit en réponse à une pression et le circuit émet une sortie de rétroaction en réponse au signal provenant du détecteur de force. Le boîtier peut être en forme de balle déformable (80), de cylindre déformable (90), de cible de frappe (110), de gant de base-ball (180), de gant de golf (200) ou alors, il peut faire partie d'un dispositif de prise (190) tel qu'un club de golf.
