A nanoengineered fabric capable of densely distributed pressure sensing is presented. Piezoresistive carbon nanotube-latex thin films were spray-coated and integrated with fabric to form robust, flexible, and deformable sensors. Spatial pressure sensing was achieved and validated experimentally using an electrical impedance tomography algorithm, which was able to estimate the resistivity distribution of the fabric and its changes due to applied pressure at different locations.
