Paper Abstract

This paper reports the development and the characterization of a new silicone end-effector with integrated sensor based on a set of platine piezoresistive gage. Used as interface between a micromanipulator or actuator and a manipulated small object, the features of the end-effector are: 1) its compactness (length between 750μm and 2mm, width=40μm, thickness=25μm), 2) the fully integrated force measurement system thanks to microfabricated platine piezoresistive gage, 3) the 2-dof (degrees of freedom: along y and z axis) measurement capability, 4) the high sensitivity of measurment provided for each axis (0.6% to 0.8% for the range of measured force of 1mN), 4) and the relatively high gauge factor (G=6). This paper reports the principle, the development, the microfabrication and the characterization of the 2-dof sensorized end-effector.
