A blog on SmartPlanet.com reported, “Homes of the future may soon be equipped with ‘smart carpets,’ or sensor-packed rugs that can instantly detect when someone has fallen and can’t get up or when unknown feet have been taking a walk around.” Developed by researchers at the University of Manchester in the U.K., the carpet contains a layer of optical fibers that creates a 2-D pressure map. When stepped on, this map distorts, causing sensors around the carpet’s edges to relay signals to a computer, which analyzes the footsteps—is this a normal walk across a room or has someone fallen to the ground?
