Claim of US Patent No. 10,338,753

1. A flexible multi-layer sensing surface comprising:a first flexible sensing layer;
a second flexible layer comprising a second flexible sensing layer or a flexible output layer, wherein the first flexible sensing layer and the second flexible layer comprise a first part; and
a calibration module in a second part arranged to use the first flexible sensing layer to detect a relative position of the first flexible sensing layer and the second flexible layer and to update one or more stored operating parameters based, at least in part, on the detected relative position, wherein the one or more stored operating parameters comprises at least one offset parameter specifying a change in the relative position of the first flexible sensing layer and the second flexible layer in two perpendicular directions in a plane of the flexible multi-layer sensing surface.
