Low cost standard polymer optical fibre (POF) is incorporated into a standard carpet or rubber mat, enabling unobtrusive collection of longitudinal data from individuals walking or exercising on the mat. We present several data analysis methods applied to distributed sensor mats using POF grids for measuring human motion, including detection of position, locus and motion of a person at any position, using tomographic imaging, and for measuring the balance and changes in centre of mass of a person who is stationary on the mat using analogue null balance methods, and pattern recognition and machine learning classification, to identify different types of walking.
