A magnetorheological elastomer (MRE)-based wireless sensor is designed, developed and tested, which is capable of sensing compression and shear forces. The MRE wireless sensor system consists of a disk-shape MRE sample with two thin steel electrodes attached to both sides and two wires connected to electrodes. Electrical resistance of MRE sensor samples changes due to piezoresistance behavior of MRE as various axial and shear stresses are applied. Electrical resistance decreases as the applied compressive axial forces increases, on the other hand, the electrical resistance increases as the applied shear force increases. Different MRE sensor configurations are evaluated for design optimization.
