Conventional force sensors are overdesigned for use in measuring human force inputs, such as is needed in research and application of human/robot interaction. A new type of force sensor is introduced that is suited to human-robot interaction. This sensor is based on optoelectronic measurements rather than strain gauges. Criteria for material selection and dimensioning are given, and results for linearity, noise, and drift are reported
