A new distance sensor is presented using a cloth inductor combined with a magnet. The sensor, reported in this paper, makes use of the characteristics of the cloth inductor. A distance sensor using a cloth inductor has superior characteristics due to the cloth inductor. The cloth inductor has two great characteristics: a plain shape and a closed magnetic path. The sensor also has a very plain shape (thickness<0.6 mm), a high signal-to-noise ratio, and is independent of the nearby magnetic substance.
