Paper Abstract

Smart textiles, also known as smart garments, smart clothing, or smart fabrics are revolutionizing our world because of their ability to sense, communicate, conduct energy, and transform providing a new sense reality to our daily lives. Over the past years our research group at Redondo Optics and support collaborators have been working on developing novel methods for embedding fiber optic sensors within high performance “Smart” textile synthetic materials used in the manufacturing of fabrics, ropes, and cables.
