Printed smart fabric antennas

Smart fabrics can sense and react to stimuli from the environment; the everyday fabric is modified to incorporate sensors/actuators/electronics.

The fabric’s primary function (eg clothing) is therefore given a second high value-added function.

Technology roadmap

Since 2008, the University of Southampton has developed a number of printable pastes to achieve printing functional electronic devices on fabrics. With these, we have fabricated antenna structures on fabric.

2008-2012: MICROFLEX: EU integrated project

2013-2016: CREATIF: EU project
