A team of researchers from Dartmouth College and Microsoft Research developed a smart cloth that can easily detect non-metallic objects right fromavocadoes to credit cards. The new fabric has been named Capacitivo and its senses switches in electrical charge to detect products with different sizes and shapes. The sensing system presented at the ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST 2020) is projected to change the way people communicate with computing using soft objects like fabric on a daily basis. According to Xing-Dong Yang, touch is a necessary input for the existing sensing technique based fabrics.
This new interactive system depends on the input technique in which the fabric requires no action from the objectit is sensing. The shift in the electrical charge in the electrodes occurring due to alterations in the electrical field of an object helps fabric system recognize the objects. The changes in the charges help identify the object’s material type, size, and shape of the contact area. Additionally, the machine learning technique help detect electrical charge information and data stored in the system. The interesting part is recognizing non-metallic objects such askitchenware,food items, plastic, liquids, and paper products. In the smart fabric technology being able to detect non-metallic objects is a breakthrough as it allows users to interact with a variety of products on a daily basis that too in a completely new way.
The researchers developed a smart tablecloth in different sizes, shapes, and also with various materials. The new fabric showed 94.5% accuracy when tested. The system showed great distinguishing power between solid, liquid, and numerous other objects. However, the major drawback is that objects with no firm footprints such as credit cards were not recognized by the system. The prototype version of this smart technology is made of conductive fabric glued to a cotton sheet that is further embedded with a grid of diamond-shaped electrodes. The distance between the electrodes was found to majorly enhance the sensitivity and sensing area. The smart fabric can trigger a desired action or prompt such finding lost objects, providing notifications, helping connect other smart systems.
