The ATRG have published a new research article on the development of a vibration sensing electronic yarn. The article ‘Vibration-Sensing Electronic Yarns for the Monitoring of Hand Transmitted Vibrations’ focusses on the characterisation of the electronic yarn for a range of vibration amplitudes and frequencies that are relevant to hand transmitted vibrations at each stage of the production process; as a soldered component (accelerometer), when encapsulated, as a final yarn, and once in a fabric. The work presents a vibration sensing glove that is capable of taking vibration measurements at both the palm of the hand and on the index finger. The article was published in Sensors and is available here.
