Martijn ten Bhömer is Doctoral Candidate at Eindhoven University of Technology. In his presentation, Martijn will show examples of smart textile services that have been developed in the CRISP project by the TU/e, healthcare service providers, local textile and technology industry. Further, he will show in more detail the electronics platform that has been developed together with Metatronics that enabled these connected smart textile applications.
In the last years, smart textiles have become more and more integrated with service ecosystems that go beyond the current vertical textile value chain. This is extending the material and tangible properties of smart textiles with more intangible properties from services. The ability to measure and store data from the body combined with changes on the functionality of smart textiles over time opens a new world of opportunities.
