Title: FORCE PROFILE INTEGRATING SENSOR
Abstract:
A new force-sensitive sensor structure is disclosed. The sensor (10) comprises sensor segments (20) translating applied force into electrical conductance in continuous or discrete steps. The sensor segments (20) are distributed in specified direction (16) along length of sensor (10) in such a way that the total electrical conductance sensor (10) is representative of a pressure profile applied to the sensor (10).
