This review aims to discuss the inkjet printing technique as a fabrication method for the development of large-area tactile sensors. The paper focuses on the manufacturing techniques and various system-level sensor design aspects related to the inkjet manufacturing processes. The goal is to assess how printed electronics simplify the fabrication process of tactile sensors with respect to conventional fabrication methods and how these contribute to overcoming the difficulties arising in the development of tactile sensors for real robot applications. To this aim, a comparative analysis among different inkjet printing technologies and processes is performed, including a quantitative analysis of the design parameters, such as the costs, processing times, sensor layout, and general system-level constraints. The goal of the survey is to provide a complete map of the state of the art of inkjet printing, focusing on the most effective topics for the implementation of large-area tactile sensors and a view of the most relevant open problems that should be addressed to improve the effectiveness of these processes.

Abstract

This review aims to discuss the inkjet printing technique as a fabrication method for the development of large-area tactile sensors. The paper focuses on the manufacturing techniques and various system-level sensor design aspects related to the inkjet manufacturing processes. The goal is to assess how printed electronics simplify the fabrication process of tactile sensors with respect to conventional fabrication methods and how these contribute to overcoming the difficulties arising in the development of tactile sensors for real robot applications. To this aim, a comparative analysis among different inkjet printing technologies and processes is performed, including a quantitative analysis of the design parameters, such as the costs, processing times, sensor layout, and general system-level constraints. The goal of the survey is to provide a complete map of the state of the art of inkjet printing, focusing on the most effective topics for the implementation of large-area tactile sensors and a view of the most relevant open problems that should be addressed to improve the effectiveness of these processes.
