Smart Electrically Powered and Networked Textile Systems


SMART ePANTS program aims to develop sensor systems that can record and store audio, video and location data. For maximum comfort and dexterity of the user, additional program objectives include sensor integration into clothing, where the garment maintains similar stretchability, bendability, surface roughness and washability attributes to a comparable garment containing no sensor. SMART ePANTS sensor systems will also be safely worn against the skin, be reusable, and be capable of exporting the data they gather to an external data storage device (such as a computer hard drive). Sensor systems will be entirely incorporated into textile materials such as threads, or (to a limited extent) expected rigid components of commercial garments such as buttons, grommets, zippers, piping, collar stays or other structural pieces.
