Capacitive Touch Sensor

Touch sensors are also known as Tactile sensors. These are simple to design, low cost and are produced in large scale. With the advance in technology, these sensors are rapidly replacing the mechanical switches. Based on their functions there are two types of touch sensors- Capacitive sensor and Resistive sensor Capacitive sensors work by measuring capacitance and are seen in portable devices. These are durable, robust and attractive with low cost. Resistive sensors don’t depend on any electrical properties for operation. These sensors work by measuring the pressure applied to their surface.
