short description

The Professorship, together with the School of Textiles & Design at the University Reutlingen, started a joint development project for new technical textiles. In the context of an interdisciplinary student project mechanical engineers work together with textile engineers and designers. The developed textiles combine electronic engineering, measurement technologies and clothing technologies. The goal is to make movement and muscle activity measurable with just the clothing.
