I am trying to make sensor glove. I tried 2 sensors before I mount them on glove and they works fine. But after I put them on glove. the reading doesn't show up correctly. It seems not getting signals.
5x 10K resistors used in each sensors:

Hope anyone could show me the light. Thanks in advance!

Hi Hardmouse,

I have personally never played with these sensors. But to me it seems that grounding could be an issue. Could you try adding some tape to the back of the sensor to isolate it from other materials. hopefully that will get you a more stable reading. Otherwise, when I get back to the office on Monday I will try to replicate your problem.
