In multi-axis force sensor, compliance matrices representing structural behaviour of internal sensor bodies play an important role in decoupled sensing and accuracy, Recently, error propagation through compliance matrices has been studied via approximation approach. However the upper bound of measured force error has not been known. In this paper, error propagation in force sensing is analysed in a unified way when both strain measurement error and compliance matrix error exist, and the upper bound of the measured force error is derived exactly(not approximately). The analysis is examined through a numerical example.
