Imagine a technology which is an artificial muscle integrated into textililes..

  • Such a smart textile has huge application potential and can support people in many different ways. The garment would use haptic feedback (i.e. the use of touch to guide the user) or could serve as a discrete way of information transfer and is closely related to bodily tasks of movement and physical awareness.


    :help: Having these smart textiles available, can you think of an application area or use cases in your industry?


    Background information: The smart textile is being developed by an international research project team funded by the European Commission called WEAFING (= Wearable Electroactive Fabrics Integrated In Garments, see https://www.weafing.eu/).
