The MCF conductive rubber, combining the MCF in a silicon-oil rubber, has been developed by Shimada a few years ago. Recently, by means of the MCF electric conductive rubber, we are developing a haptic sensor for the applications to a robotic finger, artificial skin, and so on. For the purpose of the applications, it is important to understand dynamic characteristics of the MCF electric conductive rubber. In this paper, at first, we investigated the Young's modulus and the relation among the Young's modulus, electric resistance and temperature sensitivity. Secondly, we investigated the effects of the concentration of the particles in the MCF rubber and applying magnetic field on the MCF rubber on the dynamic characteristics.
