Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) is a method used to display, through an image, the conductivity distribution inside a domain by using measurements taken from electrodes placed at its periphery. This paper presents our prototype of a stretchable touch sensor, which is based on the EIT method. We then test its performance by comparing voltage data acquired from testing with two different materials, using the performance parameters Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR), Boundary Voltage Changes (BVC) and Singular Value Decomposition (SVD). The paper contributes to the literature by demonstrating that, depending on the present stimuli position over the conductive domain, the selection of electrodes on which current injection and voltage reading are performed, can be chosen dynamically resulting in an improved quality of the reconstructed image and system performance.
