Researchers at the University of Southern California and Virginia Tech have developed a fabric woven with conductive wires and a cluster of seven button-size microphones that can be used to detect the sound of remote objects, like approaching vehicles.
«The fabric gives us the capacity to make very large computing systems with integrated sensors and integrated power supplies and to do this very cheaply with existing textile manufacturing capabilities,» said Mark Jones, a professor of electrical computer engineering at Virginia Tech.
