An electronic packaging technique using silicone-based conductive adhesives was applied to the fabrication of tactile sensor sheets using poly (vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) films for artificial skin applications in robots and related equipment. Silicone-based conductive adhesives containing 85 wt % Ag particles were employed for wiring and interconnection. In addition, the sensor sheet was perfectly encapsulated by injection molding of the silicone rubber. Prototype tactile sensor sheets were connected to a self-organized network of distributed processors and shown to work successfully.
