Electrically conductive textiles make it possible to produce interactive electronic textiles . They can be used for communication, entertainment, health care, safety, homeland security, computation, thermal purposes, protective clothing , wearable electronics and fashion. The details of the applications are listed as follows: location/position: infant/toddler/active child monitoring, geriatric monitoring, integrated GPS (global positioning system) monitoring, livestock monitoring, asset tracking, etc. infotainment: integrated compact disc players , MP3 players, cell phones and pagers, electronic game panels, digital cameras, and video devices, etc. environmental response: colour change, density change, heating change, etc. biophysical monitoring (strategic/qualitative assessment only): cardiovascular monitoring, monitoring the vital signs of infants, monitoring clinical trials, etc. consumer: health and fitness (professional and amateur; indoor and outdoor activities), home healthcare, fashion, gaming, residential interior design , etc. government: military (soldiers, support personnel in the battlefield), space programmes, public safety (fire fighting, law enforcement), etc. medical: hospitals, medical centres, assisted-living units, etc. commercial: commercial interior design, retail sites, etc. industrial: protective textiles, automotive, exposure-indicating textiles, etc. What are the applications of conductive textiles

Why cotton has no problems in electrostatic charge It was observed that the cotton woven fabrics have less static in high humidity conditions because they observed water from the atmosphere and this water conduct and helps to dissipate and distribute the electrical static charge and also cotton fabrics are ineffective at dissipating static electric charge at very low level RH.

Self-study: Magnetic and Electromagnetic Textiles EM properties of the textiles, EM functional textile materials, Application of the EM functional textiles. Generally, textiles are poor in EM properties such as low conductivity and low dielectric and magnetic properties. EM functional textile materials can be made and are antistatic textiles, EM shielding textiles, EM scattering textiles, and two-dimensional and three- dimensional frequency selective textiles. The principle, the processing methods, the properties of the static electro or EM shielding or EM scattering or frequency selection, and so on are described one by one in detail.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
