Smart textiles

Smart textiles are conventional fabrics containing integrated electronic functionality. MTIF works across three broad categories – Textiles with a sensing function referred to as passive, smart textiles, Textiles with an actuating function described as active, smart textiles, Textiles with an adaptive function called ultra-smart textiles containing a sensor, actuator and processor to tailor their output. MTIF offers two approaches to smart textile production, yarn integrated with discrete electronic components encapsulated within a textile sleeve to form a functional yarn and printed smart textiles where the electronic circuit is formed directly on the textile using functional inks.
