Smart-textiles developers draw on diverse fields to produce unique materials with unique properties. Several disciplines are involved in the construction of smart textiles, and each has its own language, specific terms, and approaches. Multidisciplinary know-how for smart-textiles developers provides filtered knowledge of these areas of expertise, explaining key expressions and demonstrating their relevance to smart-textiles. Following an introduction to new enabling technologies, commercialization, and market trends involved in the future of smart-textiles development, Part One reviews materials used in producing smart textiles. Types and processing of electro-conductive and semiconducting materials, optical fibers for smart photonic textiles, conductive nanofibers and nanocoatings, polymer-based resistive sensors, and soft capacitance fibers for touch-sensitive smart textiles are discussed. Part Two investigates embedding electronic functions, integrating thin-film electronics, and developing organic and large-area electronic (OLAE) technologies. Joining, kinetic, thermoelectric, solar energy harvesting, and signal processing technologies for activity-aware smart textiles are also discussed. Part Three investigates strategies for technology management, innovation and improved sustainability. The book concludes by exploring medical, automotive, and architectural applications. With its distinguished editor and expert contributors, Multidisciplinary Know-How for Smart-Textiles Developers is a key tool for readers working in design, fashion, textiles, electronics, computing, and material science.
