This paper presents the fabrication and implementation of novel resistive sensors for force-sensing applications. The sensors were developed from specific proportions of graphite and polydimethylsiloxane to form thin-film layers. Localisation was done on the sensors to determine the variation in their responses with respect to different locations and magnitude of the force. The ideology behind these sensors is their uses as tactile sensors for industrial applications and electronic skins for healthcare applications. These sensors showed significant response with a high R2 value for forces ranging from 1 N to 5 N. The podium provided by these sensors could be used as a reference to enhance the ideology on resistive sensing for localisation of the thin-film prototypes.
