Title: PRESSURE-SENSITIVE SENSOR
Abstract:
This pressure-sensitive sensor is provided with a variable-resistance part, and a first electrode and a second electrode. The variable-resistance part is formed of a conductive foam elastomer material, and, when pressure is applied, gets compressed according to the pressure so that the electrical resistance is reduced as the amount of compression is increased. The first and second electrodes are configured to be in contact with the variable-resistance part in a space between the two electrodes that is 0.5 mm or greater so as to be electrically connected via the variable-resistance part.
