Inseparable. ANGEL was our first venture into the world of intelligent textile systems. With the PATCH project we are going one step further and are researching how to manufacture sensors, actuators, conductors, and other components on an industrial scale. Washability, durability, and functionality paired with affordable production costs are the challenges we have accepted. We also develop suitable contact methods for interconnecting the various components of an intelligent textile system in a robust and reliable manner.
We are networked. Over the years we have acquired knowledge about intelligent textiles. This was mainly possible due to working on solutions ourselves in cooperation with our many project partners. We now want to share this empirical data with others, because we firmly believe that intelligent textiles can have a positive influence on all our lives in the future. As a result, we encourage dialog with suppliers, manufacturers, and customers in order to push forward further developments.
