The development of a multimodal sensing platform with multiple layers for electronic skin (e-skin) sensing of temperature and pressure has attracted considerable interest to practical applications in soft robotics, human-machine interfaces, and wearable health monitoring. In this work, we demonstrated a new platform technology with multiple sandwiched layers of highly oriented carbon nanotube membrane and polyacrylonitrile for the integration of pressure and temperature sensory functionalities into a single platform that is thin, ultra-lightweight, flexible, and wearable. The key technology of in situ deposition of sensor platform on objects or in robot interface makes this a unique method for the development of e-skins for robotic applications, offering a new approach to wearable electronics and portable health care.
