Inspired by human skin, we are developing a multisensory glove as an intriguing technological platform to allow prosthetic and robotic hand to simultaneously feel the pressure, temperature, and humidity. This work presents a low-cost implementation of the flexible glove with multiple sensors to obtain the information about grasped objects. The fully functional distributed sensors platform uses low-cost off-the-shelf components such as pressure, temperature and humidity sensors. To mount the sensors chips and other discrete components on the glove, we fabricated a flexible printed circuit (FPC) board. During validation most number of the sensors were in contact with the grasped objects and successfully measured various contact parameters.
