Abstract

In the FlexTiles demonstration, we present a flexible, stretchable, pressure-sensitive, tactile input sensor consisting of three layers of fabric. We demonstrate the implementation of FlexTiles for covering large areas, 3D objects, and deformable underlying shapes. In order to measure these large areas with high framerate, we demonstrate a simple measurement implementation. Finally, we outline the benefits of our system compared to other tactile sensing techniques.
