Flexible sensors have the potential to be seamlessly applied to soft and irregularly shaped
surfaces such as the human skin or textile fabrics. This benefits conformability dependant applications
including smart tattoos, artificial skins and soft robotics. Consequently, materials and structures for
innovative flexible sensors, as well as their integration into systems, continue to be in the spotlight
of research. This review outlines the current state of flexible sensor technologies and the impact
of material developments on this field. Special attention is given to strain, temperature, chemical,
light and electropotential sensors, as well as their respective applications.
