Abstract: Flexible strain sensors and their sensing performance have been attractive in human motion detection applications. In this project, a knitted strain sensor was designed and fabricated via the technology of weft-knitting a nylon nylon-wrapped spandex silver-coated yarn into a knitted garment. Locations of sensor areas were customized to form a whole piece of knitted garment popular for today s applications in elastic tight-fitting activewear. The sensor provides electrical resistance data as a wearable sensing device for detecting body motions. A new method of using a three-dimensional curved surface to evaluate the sensing performance of the knitted strain sensor was proposed. Compared with the method of two-dimensional test, the three-dimensional test method was closer to the actual human sensing situation when the knitted sensor is worn. The strain sensing range of the three-dimensional curved surface was 120 , twice the sensing range of the two-dimensional surface.This research indicated that this three-dimensional surface testing method could be effectively applied in the sensing performance evaluation of fabric strain sensors.
