Fabrics get smart

Two of the newest ways to create fabric sensors rely on nanotechnology to make polymer-fabric fibers conductive to varying degrees. NanoSonic has recently developed smart fabrics it based on an electrostatic self-assembly process (Reference 2). The developers of this process initially created it to make free-standing elastomeric sensor films. The self-assembly process can infuse the surface of textile fibers with various nanocompositesócombinations of polymers and metals or metal oxides.
