Description of the thesis topic
The new field of science dealing with implementation of electronic devices to textiles is known as e-textiles. Even if there are a lot of prototypes on the laboratory scale, e-textiles are not ready for the market and it is still rare to find finalized products to purchase. The main reason of that is the lack of reliability and the issues related to washability or ironing, particularly due to the need of worn battery. The aim of the CONTEXT project is development of efficient technologies dedicated to innovative e-textile products for interactive clothing and footwear. These technologies will be able to accomplish steadfast connections between on-body sensors network and a gateway, with both wireless energy transfer and data transmission within textile structures. One of the project objective focuses on the data transmission between sensors and a smartphone. Hige data rate transmission will be obtained by using the Industrial, Scientific, and Medical band (ISM) at 2.4 GHz. By taking inspiration from metamaterials, the project will intend to use textile structure as a waveguide for surface waves.
The PhD will be supervised by the CMA team for CONTEXT project at LEAT laboratory
