Certain plastic film materials can be used as sensitive tactile and impact sensors covering large surfaces. In surveillance and health care applications they can sense movement, activity or some physiological parameters. Various available film materials and their operational principles are reviewed. Comparison has been made between piezoelectric polymer film, thin porous electret material, and soft capacitive film materials in their sensing capabilities. Generation of the signal and measurement… CONTINUE READING
