1. A detector constructed from fabric having electrically conductive elements and configured to produce electrical outputs in response to mechanical interactions, whereinsaid detector is divided into a plurality of regions;

  • each of said regions includes a first conducting plane and a second conducting plane configured such that, in use, a mechanical interaction results in conducting planes of at least one of said regions being brought closer together; and

    a potential is applied across at least one of said planes to identify said at least one region and to determine a position of mechanical interaction within said region.
