Wireless Textiles – Project leader Ylva Fernaeus SICS, KTH participant: Dr Cristian Bogdan, CSC School, Funding amount: 500 KSEK
The main goal with the proposed project is to develop a larger research consortium on the theme of “Wireless Textiles”, e.g. textile materials used as antennae, sensors, actuators, battery cells and charging devices for novel interactive use settings. The main deliverable will be a foundation for research grant applications based on a preparatory study, a set of initial demonstrators,and a complete list of collaborating industry partners and interest in participation.
