Deciphering multiple deformations

EPFLBy adapting concepts from reflectometry, researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology have created soft fibre-shaped sensors that open up many new possibilities for smart textiles.

Mechanical sensing is a key functionality in soft electronics intended for applications in health monitoring, human-machine interactions and soft robotics.
