This work presents an empirical study into the design of fabric pressure sensors, taking into account the electro-mechanical variability of spacer fabric. The saturation of the fabric sensor at high force levels is a major factor limiting the range of measurable pressures. In order to address this, experiments were carried out to investigate several methods of modifying the sensitivity characteristics through the layering and specifications of the textile sheets.
