Abstract

A micromachined planar spiral inductor was created for the use of a passive mechanoreceptor element in a practical skin-like tactile sensor. The first version of the element was previously reported [1]. This paper shows the results of a simulation of the receptor element that changes inductance when largely deformed. We also report a modified method of fabrication and improves durability dramatically. Finally, we evaluated the validation of the simulation method.
