Description:Smart textile developers draw on diverse fields of knowledge to produce unique materials with enhanced properties and vast potential. Several disciplines outside the traditional textile area are involved in the construction of these smart textiles, and each individual field has its own language, specific terms and approaches. Multidisciplinary know-how for smart-textiles developers provides a filtered knowledge of these areas of expertise, explaining key expressions and demonstrating their relevance to the smart textiles field. Part one reviews materials employed in the production of smart textiles, before part two explores the technologies that may be used and incorporated into smart textiles. Finally, product development and applications are the focus of part three.
