Abstract

We present an innovative 2D pressure sensor for application below a mattress. It deploys a matrix of plastic optical fibre crosspoints which is robust, sensitive, scalable, flexible, waterproof, EMI insensitive, and only 3mm thick. Measurements show a nearly linear detection characteristic.
