PO1.4: Sheet Type Sensor for Monitoring of Shear Force on Wheelchair

We have developed a sheet type shear force sensor. Most recent sensor is about 0.7 mm in thickness and its diameter is 10 mm. It is made of rather flexible materials. Therefore, it seems to provide a monitoring tool to evaluate shear force on wheel chair. A compact and battery-powered measurement system for the shear force sensor has also been developed. The sensing data is continuously send to a mobile computer via Bluetooth communication.
