Textiles surround us wherever we go and not just in the form of the clothes we wear,

but  also  on  floors,  walls  and  furniture  and  in  automobiles  too,  where  they  are  used  for

everything from seats to tires. Textiles are even used in the construction of buildings. While

technical  textiles  already  make  use  of  innovative  materials  such  as  carbon  and  glass  or

conductive  fibers,  the  next  generation  of  textiles  will  be  electronically  enhanced  so  as  to

increase efficiency, convenience, and personal safety in a number of different areas.



Leading-edge  bonding  methods  to  develop  interconnect  technologies  for  the  most  diverse

conductive  fabrics  and  microelectronic  materials  are  used.  Elaborate  electrical  and  optical

analyses  of  the  contact  areas  and  materials  are  conducted  and  extensive  usability  tests  to

evaluates are carried out.



Applications  are    in  the  detecting  temperature  of  the  body,  monitoring  the  health,  detecting

calls  in  the  cellphone  etc.  Also  it  has  find  its  applications  in  vehicles,  medicals,  space

research,  defense  etc.  It  is  expected  that  in  the  future  it  would  find  its  applications  for  the

common man too.
