This paper presents fabrication and characterization of a pressure-sensitive polymeric composite on a flexible readout circuit as an artificial skin. Porous nylon was used as the matrix, which provided skin-like mechanical properties. Inside the matrix, polypyrrole was electrochemically deposited and acted as conductive dopant. The fabrication was detailed. The conductivity of the fabricated composite increased when a compressive load was applied. The electro-mechanical characteristics of the composite were measured.
