The development of a multifunctional artificial tactile perception system has potential benefits for future robotic technologies, human-machine interfaces, artificial intelligence, and health monitoring devices. However, constructing systems beyond simple pressure sensing capabilities remains challenging. Here, we propose an artificial flexible and ultra-thin (50 μ m) skin system to simultaneously capture 3D tactile and thermal signals, which mimics the human tactile recognition process using customized sensor pairs and compact peripheral signal-converting circuits. The 3D tactile sensors have a flower-like asymmetric structure with 5-ports and 4 capacitive elements in pairs. Differential and average signals would reveal the curl and amplitude values of the fore field with a resolution of 0.18/mm. The resistive thermal sensors are fabricated with serpentine lines and possess stable heat-sensing performance (165 mV/°C) under shape deformation conditions. Real-time monitoring of the skin stimuli is displayed on the user interface and stored on mobile clients. This work offers broad capabilities relevant to practical applications ranging from assistant prosthetics to artificial electronic skins.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/169015||ISSN:||0956-5663||DOI:||10.1016/j.bios.2022.115054||Schools:||School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering||Research Centres:||Schaeffler Hub for Advanced Research (SHARE@NTU)||Rights:||© 2022 Elsevier B.V.
