We propose a new signal transmission method named "Two-Dimensional Signal Transmission (2DST)" for connecting a large number of devices, using microwave propagation localized in a thin two-dimensional sheet. In this method, we can use a wide range of materials for the communication sheet, and realize flexible connection among many devices by high-speed signal transmission. In this paper, first we analyze two dimensional propagation of electromagnetic wave in a thin layer. We show there exists a traveling mode between two conductive layers. We examine the signal transmission experimentally and confirm communication through conductive clothes based on IEEE 802.11b.
