Fabric Sensors for Three Dimensional Surface Pressure Mapping

Fabric pressure sensors are ideal candidates for measuring pressure on three dimensional surfaces. They are promising for applications in functional wear and building maintenance. Based on previous research conducted, the present project is aimed to further develop pilot production technologies of fabric sensors for measuring pressure on three dimensional complex surfaces. These pressure sensors should have a high environment stability, long service life, reasonable material and production cost. The proposed project will investigate and develop pilot production and quality assurance technologies for these fabric sensors and explore their applications. This technology will create a new market of high value-added products for traditional textile and apparel industries.
