This project proposed for the student of Scientific Initiation has as goal principal to participate of the construction of an device of measure of electric conductivity in function of the pressure, doing besides the structure, that is being concluded by the student in the first stage, the calibration to guarantee to the material conductive studied elastomeric, the operation as sensor of pressure. The calibration will be made varying the mechanical parameters, being the control of the applied pressure using different loads cells and variation of the thickness of the sample in function of the pressure, the electric parameters through tests with resistors. After confronting the equipment, samples with properties elastomeric and electric conductivity will be characterized as pressure sensor. With the confirmation of the efficiency of the equipment a project is foreseen for automation of this equipment for next semester for two students of the course of the Computation Science that will make the integrated systems and the interface program, that are already participating in the development of the project. It is worth to point out that also shimmers in this project it is the patent register and commercialization of the same.
