Smart textiles

Textiles surround us wherever we go and not just in the form of the clothes we wear, but also on floors, walls, furniture and in automobiles, where they are used for everything from seats to tyres. Textiles are even used in the construction of buildings. While technical textiles already make use of innovative materials such as carbon and glass or conductive fibers, the next generation of textiles will be electronically enhanced so as to increase efficiency, convenience and personal safety in a number of different areas.

For wearable electronics solutions, we cooperate with our partner Interactive Wear

At the Future-Shape Smart Textile Laboratory, we use leading-edge bonding methods to develop interconnect technologies for the most diverse conductive fabrics and microelectronic materials. We conduct elaborate electrical and optical analyses of the contact areas and materials and carry out extensive usability tests to evaluate degradation characteristics.
