Measuring load using current

Hi

Is it possible to measure whether the robot arm has touched a hard surface/heavy object by measuring the fact that the robot arm is not moving, despite putting out torque at the motors, for e.g. by measuring a spike in current to the motors? Basically I am looking for creative ways to do away with a load cell.

Regards
