Thesis title: Development of testing & quality control methods for e-textiles

The global e-textiles business revenue is growing in an accelerated pattern and many e-textile products are now commercially available, so standardized testing and quality control methods are essential for safeguarding the quality, sustained performance, and product safety during the end consumer application. Indeed the lack of standardized test methods for smart clothing and apparel is considered as one of the barriers to the growth of this promising sector. The goal of this research is to develop product-oriented and versatile testing & quality control methods for e-textiles.
