This paper presents a new design for a torque sensor based on a differential capacitive technology. An arc-radial mechanism is adopted to achieve high rotary/radial motion linearity. Kinematic model of this assembly is derived via vector loop equations. A nonlinearity index is formulated and practical kinematic constraints are imposed. Results show that very high kinematic linearity could be achieved by this new device
