Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9960357A1] A sensor is formed of a plurality of conductive fabric layers (A, B) separated by an insulating layer (C). The first conductive layer (A) is provided with an electrical terminal (H) while the second conductive layer (B) is provided with a plurality of electrical terminals (E-I). Upon application of compressive pressure, electrical contact is established between the first and second conductive layers (A, B) the nature of which can be determined by analysis of the resistances between the various electrical terminals.
