EIT BASED PIEZORESISTIVE TACTILE SENSORS: A SIMULATION STUDY
MetadataShow full item record
Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is an imaging technique that uses voltage measurements to map the internal conductivity distribution of a body by applying current on electrodes attached to the boundary of that body. EIT has many applications, ranging from medical imaging to 3D printing. This imaging method is also being used for tactile sensing using stretchable piezoresistive sensors, mainly for robotic applications. Although prior research has focused on qualitative illustrations of tactile sensing, this thesis focuses on quantitative evaluation. In this thesis different current injection patterns are quantitatively analyzed using performance metrics to understand their effect on the resulting EIT images.
