Smart textiles, collectively, are a vital emerging technology impacting key applications, such as:
This presentation will highlight emerging trends, opportunities and developments for smart textiles; as such it will benefit manufacturers, developers and users of this technology.
"Smart textiles, a building block of wearable electronics, are enabled by miniaturization of electronics and conductive materials. Exciting developments are underway in smart textiles, including wearable textiles with embedded sensors for monitoring vital signs or other physiological parameters, energy harvesting, personal protective garments, to name a few," said Frost & Sullivan Technical Insights Principal Analyst Peter Adrian. "For example, a key impediment to integrating electronic functionality into fabrics has been the power supply required. The ability to efficiently use energy harvesting technology with smart textiles and to create energy harvesting fabrics that are able to convert ambient energy into electricity will enable creation of more compelling e-textiles and energy harvesting textiles and garments. Furthermore, smart textiles are enabling the fabrication of clothing for the protection of soldiers or first responders from chemical warfare agents, or also the ability to provide real-time physiological status and tracking information."
