Piezoelectric Polymer Films for Tactile Sensors
Some results related to electro-mechanical characterization in frequency and temperature of PVDF piezoelectric films are reported. A rheological model of creep and recovery of the response of these samples following to a step in load or temperature is suggested. This work is intended as the first step for the electro-mechanical design of innovative integrated transduction systems for tactile sensors in robotic applications.
