SMART-TEX AGING - Causes and Impacts of Aging Effects in Smart Textiles

Project Details


The SMART-TEX AGING project explore the causes and impacts of aging effects in smart textiles and develops methods to compensate these effects. Although the influences of wearing, washing conditions, tensile and pressure changes modify the measured sensor values in part irreversibly, intelligent algorithms and pattern recognition software can once again restore the production conditions. The interdisciplinary project requires expertise in the domains of physics, chemistry, electronics, software and artificial intelligence.
The main development contents of the project SMART-TEX AGING are:
a) to identify the causes of aging effects in smart textiles
b) to minimize these effects by special materials and manufacturing methods
c) and finally the compensation of the remaining aging effects through electronics and intelligent algorithms.
