A Flex and Force sensor. This is a flexible sensor which changes its output when it is bent or when force is applied on it.
This sensor has two output wires. The resistance between these two wires varies when the sensor is bent or when subjected to a force. Hence, this sensor can be used as a flex or force sensor. When the sensor is kept straight with no force acting on it, it has a resistance of around 30 K Ohms. When the sensor is bent in either way, or when force is applied on the sensor, the resistance between these two wires decreases proportionally to the amount of bending or to the force applied to about 5 K Ohm.
The active sensing area of this sensor is 12 cm(~4").
This sensor is great for making whiskers for obstacle avoiding robots, gloves that sense finger positions, door position sensors, etc
