Tactile sensors are the interfaces to detect the physical properties of objects and have extensive applications in robotic sensing, biomechanics, minimally invasive surgery and human prosthetics [1]. For human prosthetics applications, the current prosthetic hand can offer only the manipulation function. With the sensing being part of the prosthetic hand, the user can get feedback from the prosthetic. This feeling can help users decrease their dependency on visual information and have better body control on weight balancing and signal limb stance.
