Paper Abstract

This paper introduces a new principle of no-scanning tactile resonant sensor array. All sensory elements in this sensor array form independent oscillators which ave different resonant frequency because of the fabrication of different thickness on electrodes and the special resonant circuits connected with them. Once a pressure or force is applied on the surface of piezoelectric plane, the resonant frequencies in the application area will change along with diversity of the applied pressure or force quickly. The resonant frequencies in the application area will change along with diversity of the applied pressure or force quickly. The resonant frequencies in the application area will change along with diversity of the applied pressure or force quickly. The resonant signals in all sensor elements are taken out from parallel output lines continuously. Since only the data which have designated meaning are processed, thus the data are compressed and a real-time sensing system may be obtained. The output of the array is quasidigital signal and can be processed in a digital way easily, its antijam is well. The sensor array contains two functional units: the sensory unit, the signal generating and processing unit, which can be integrated or be wired together easily. So the sensor array may be feasible for both large dimensions sensing and perception of fine object.
