This paper reports on the development of flexible polymer sensing foils based on embedded fibre Bragg grating (FBG) sensors. The foil consists of quasi-distributed sensing points with FBGs inscribed in highly birefringent photonic crystal fibres (PCF). A local pressure sensitivity of 9.08 pm/kPa and a pressure resolution of 0.11 kPa were achieved at sensing points.
