Description

Wearable, garment-integrated sensing is a distinct challenge for many reasons. Significant among these reasons is the challenge of fabricating sensors that are unobtrusive and comfortable for longterm daily wear. Here, we present a novel method for fabricating e-textile stretch sensors using industrial sewing machinery. The resulting sensors are perceptually similar to existing stitches used in garment fabrication, offering improvements in comfort and ease of manufacture compared to other types of sensors.
