Traditionally, tactile sensors have been designed using compliant, rubber-like materials; when such a sensitized
gripper grasps or otherwise manipulates an object, the normal strain deformation in the compliant material is
sampled.The resulting information can be used to deduce simple local geometry of the contact, but the transduc-
tion process does not typically permit use of the individual strains in determining large-scale properties of the
object (e.g., the inertia). Measurements of inertial parameters of grasped objects require accurate, low-hysteresis
