 Smart and E-textiles play a significant role as well in the European textile sector and assist the textile industry in its transformation into a competitive knowledge-driven industry. Numerous materials and systems are available together with devices for sensing and actuation, but they are not compatible with textile substrates or with the textile production processes. They could be transformed into a textile-compatible structure or even in a full textile structure.

Smart textiles can be defined as textiles that can sense and respond to changes in their environment.

They can detect different signals from the environment (temperature, light intensity, pollution…), to decide how to react, and finally to act using various textile-based, flexible, or miniaturized actuators (textile displays, micro vibrating devices, LED, OLED…). The “decision” can be taken locally in case of embedded electronic devices (textile electronics) to smart textile structures or remotely in case the smart textile is wirelessly connected to clouds containing database, servers with artificial intelligence software, etc. and may be a part of the Internet of Things (IoT) concept.

This keynote focusses on the latest research project results within the GEMTEX laboratory smart and E-textiles research team given below:

- PHOS ISTOS, FP7 EU Project in the field of light-emitting textiles structures used for a Photo Dynamic Therapy of skin cancer in its initial phase;

- @HEALTH, B2B project, concerning ECG monitoring in real-time, with the system embedded into underwear aiming at the development of the predictive medicine concept;

- CONTEXT, ANR, French collaborative scientific project, in the area of textile metamaterials for energy harvesting and data transfer, using high and low frequency (2,4 GHz and NFC frequency 13,56 MHz) textile antennas; and

- LITEVA, FUI, French industrial project dealing with the new generation of autonomous vehicle dashboards.

- Petit Bateau company project on dealing with the children Enuresis

- Standards establishment for E-textiles (report on the activities of D-75a-EU E-Textiles Wearables Standard Task Group in Europe, chairman V. Koncar)

Keywords: E-textiles, new technologies, medical area, collaboration with the industry
