Electronic textiles for energy, sensing, and communication.

Publication Date May 20, 2022

Abstract

Electronic textiles (e-textiles) are fabrics that can perform electronic functions such as sensing, computation, display, and communication. They can enhance the functionality of clothing in a variety of convenient and unobtrusive ways, thus have garnered significant research and commercial interest in applications ranging from fashion to healthcare. Recent advances in materials science and electronics have given rise to variety of e-textile components, including sensors, energy harvesters, batteries, and antennas on flexible and breathable textiles substrates. In this review, we discuss recent advances in the development of e-textiles for energy, sensing, and communication. In addition, we investigate challenges in the integration of components to realize e-textile systems, and highlight opportunities enabled by innovations in materials science, engineering, and data science.
