Abstract : The patent comprises an array of dynamic pressure and vibration transducers formed by laying down metallic films on both sides of a sheet of permanently polarizable polymeric material. One side is covered completely and the other side is dotted with metallic areas according to the desired array configuration. The areas covered by the latter metallic areas are the active transducing areas. Leads are then laid down to the metallic areas. Two such sheets are adhered together with the metallic areas and leads in correspondence to form a composite sandwich in the form of a pliable sheet.
