    In this paper, we propose a torque measurement device embedded in robot arms. The device uses an integrated microdisplacement sensor and trapezoidal frame. The sensor tip of 3 mm area and 0.7 mm thickness measures the mirror tilt angle on the underside of the frame caused by a torque applied to the frame. We have successfully measured a linear output change for the torque and found that the gradient of the output change differed largely from the material and the comer angle of the frame.
