The flexible and stretchable dielectric silicone sensors (DES) can be excellently integrated into textile substrates. By a freely determinable arrangement of many small sensor points, it is possible to realize an individual measuring surface with a high spatial resolution.
With the help of ASIC electronics, up to 40 measuring points can be recorded simultaneously with a high sampling rate of 50 Hz. The data can be sent wirelessly to a receiver for evaluation.
With such a measuring mat it is possible, e.g. to grasp the weight distribution on a seat or in a doormat. As a demonstrator, a mobile, rollable mat was developed, which can be used for (VR) device control or recording fitness exercises.
As a roll-up scale, it can be used for weight control.
