- Flexible tactile sensors capable of measuring mechanical stimuli via physical
contact have attracted significant attention in the field of human-interactive
systems. The utilization of tactile information can complement vision and/
or sound interaction and provide new functionalities. Recent advancements
in micro/nanotechnology, material science, and information technology have
resulted in the development of high-performance tactile sensors that reach
and even surpass the tactile sensing ability of human skin. Here, important
advances in flexible tactile sensors over recent years are summarized, from
sensor designs to system-level applications. This review focuses on the representative
strategies based on design and material configurations for improving
key performance parameters including sensitivity, detection range/linearity,
response time/hysteresis, spatial resolution/crosstalk, multidirectional force
detection, and insensitivity to other stimuli. System-level integration for practical
applications beyond conceptual prototypes and promising applications,
such as artificial electronic skin for robotics and prosthetics, wearable controllers
for electronics, and bidirectional communication tools, are also discussed.
Finally, perspectives on issues regarding further advances are provided.
