A stretch sensor is a cylindrical cord which can be stretched to achieve varying resistances. It’s a sort of variable resistor where the resistance can be adjusted by the intensity of the stretch. Usually when the sensor is stretched by 50% it reaches double it’s initial resistance.
Some stretch sensor applications:
- Various stress measuring.
- Physics experiments.
- Could be used in robotics.
- VR suits/gloves.
- Biometric displacement reading.
- Feedback sensor for air muscles.
