  1. 1. SMART GARMENTS - Harish Pratabh.C.C
  2. 2. SMART MATERIAL is a generic term for a material that in some way reacts to the changing environment. Types : Passive smart materials Active smart materials
  3. 3.  How to can we make conductive fibres ?? #by coating them with conductive materials (carbon,etc) #by coating them with conductive polymers or metals. #Fibres can be spun with thin metallic and plastic conductive threads.
  4. 4. Metallic threads-  Thy are very thin metallic filaments.  They are produced by bundle drawing process or shaving off from a edge of a thin metal sheet.  They may also be used as electrodes for monitoring electrical physiological activity such as electrocardiogram (ECG) signals.  Conductive Inks  A layout can be screen-printed using conductive inks to add conductivity to specific areas of a garment.  Printed areas can be subsequently used as switches or pressure pads for the activation of circuits.
