In this paper, we propose a sensor that detects both pressure and shear informations by a helical spring and strain gages. The stresses working on the wire of spring are analyzed. The way to attach strain gages on the spring is discussed and the calibration procedure is shown. Finally, experiments are carried out and the effectiveness of the sensor is shown.
