DAILY ST: Smart Textiles as a Daily Routine
DailyST – Smart Textile as a Daily Routine is a project created with the aim to identify smart clothing that can facilitate and improve people’s daily lives. The garments will be designed together with the users and will be equipped with invisible and imperceptible textile sensors, especially conceived to assist them in everyday life, in a non-invasive way. They will be externally connected and can be very useful for a very large part of the population, with particular focus on the most vulnerable groups. This smart textile clothing is also an expression of sustenability in all its components, from the choice of materials to the consumption cycle and the product’s end-of-life.
The project, financed by the European Community and the Regione Lombardia in the framework of the Bando Fashiontech – Research and development projects for sustainable fashion, is coordinated by ComfTech and has MediaClinics and HBM Shifton as partners.
Technological progress is transforming garments into a platform able to integrate in the fabric increasingly imperceptible and invisible sensors, which are also functional and versatile, to support people in everyday life. These non-invasive wearables stay true to their mission, captured in the slogan: “EveryOne EveryWhere EveryTime”.
