Abstract

During last decades, a number of different sensors have been developing for different analytics to detect. A key aspect of those sensors is that each of them results with a fixed particular sensitivity. Consequently, at occurrence, it is necessary to use a plurality of sensors to arrange measures with different levels of sensitivity. This work intends to investigate the possibility to obtain different sensitivity, in particular with respect to humidity, from one sensor only. To this aim we investigated the resistive flex sensor, which has been already used for other applications but, as far as we know, never investigated for its potential properties as a chemical sensor. Results demonstrated how the resistive flex sensor behaves with different sensitivity values and different sensitivity curves for different bend conditions.
