Abstract

This paper presents a feasibility study of using 3D printing technique to fabricate microfluidic sensor for soft robotics. Microfluidic sensors are widely used in lab-on-chip devices for strain and pressure detection. This study explores 3D printing techniques and materials to fabricate microfiuidic sensors. We report a simple approach like inkjet-printing to print a complex design and fabricate microfiuidic strain sensor.
