Smart Textiles

Emerging Technology

what are smart textiles
What are Smart Textiles?
  • Smart textiles links “computer technology and electrical interactivity with textiles” (Hibbert, 2004, p.99).
  • “…materials and structures that sense and react to environmental conditions or stimuli”, such as touch, heat, chemicals, electrical and other sources (Smart technology, 2003).

Display from Phillips lumalive, 2009)

(Stylish cool commwear jacket from Kjus, 2009)

how do they work
How do they work?
  • Many examples of smart textiles use “conductive thread, fabric switches, and knitted, woven or non-woven structures incorporating embroidered pressure sensors” (Hibbert, 2004, p.99).
  • A trigger or stimulus (such as touch or a change in your heart rhythm) will be analysed and evaluated and then generate a reaction or response (Smart technology, 2003).
