9781855736054: Wearable Electronics and Photonics (Woodhead Publishing Series in Textiles)

Integrating electronics into clothing is a major new concept, which opens up a whole array of multi-functional, wearable electro-textiles for sensing/monitoring body functions, delivering communication facilities, data transfer, individual environment control, and many other applications. With revolutionary advancements occurring at an unprecedented rate in many fields of science and electronics the possibilities offered by wearable technologies are tremendous and widespread. These advancements will transform the world and will soon begin to permeate into commercial products.

The first section of the book discusses the materials and devices used in the field, including electro-statically generated nanofibres, electroceramic fibres and composites and electroactive fabrics. It summarizes recent developments in electrically conductive fabric structures and puts together a few theoretical treatments of the electro-mechanical properties of various fabric structures. The next section reviews topics related to wearable photonics such as fibre optic sensors and integrated smart textile structures, the developments in various flexible photonic display technologies as well as looking at current communication apparel and optical fibre fabric displays. Next the book focuses on integrated structures and system architectures. Finally the issues facing a fashion designer working with wearables are explored.

Wearable electronics and photonics covers many aspects of the cutting-edge research and development into this exciting field and provides a window through which only a small portion of the exciting emerging technology can be seen. With contributions from a panel of international experts in the field this is an essential guide for all electrical, textile and biomedical engineers as well as academics and fashion designers.

  • Stay one step ahead of the industry on this hot topic
  • Evaluates the major new concept of integrating electronics into clothing
  • Explores future trends for fashion and specialist clothing

Review:

This is an interesting book in that it covers the latest developments in this field that are becoming a reality due to the advancements in materials (conductive fibers/polymers) and microelectronics (camera arrays, wireless, GPS, etc.). ...So if you want to get into this exciting new area or work with nanofibers or conductive polymers, you will find this book to be very interesting, especially for getting ideas and learning about who is doing what in this new area of research.
-IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Vol. 22, No. 3, May/June, 2006
