This paper describes the system design and the structural design to evaluate the tactile sensor using the microbending fiber optic (MBFO) sensors. The small light emitted diode (LED) and charge coupled device (CCD) are used as a single light source and a light detector for the bundle of optical fibers respectively. And the structure of this type tactile sensor which is composed of crossed fibers in the silicone rubber is very simple. And the tactile sensor element using MBFO sensor is fabricated and the performance of this sensor is evaluated.
