Smartfoam Impact

Smartfoam Impact is a completely self-powered impact sensing foam. The particles and fiber embedded in the foam generate a charge through a triboelectric effect when the foam is impacted. There are no embedded sensors or accelerators in the foam. Voltage generation under impact is a property of Smartfoam material. The more impact energy, the higher the voltage. Patterns in the voltage signal can also be correlated to specific types of impact.
