Format of the?conference:?Webinar?
Date:?Monday 13 July
Wireless connectivity is essential for E-Textiles to become part of the growing internet of things networks. While wireless modules with integrated antennas are commercially-available, bespoke antenna design for E-Textiles not only improves the textile integration but can enhance the connectivity range by over an order of magnitude. This talk introduces the non-textile, fully-textile, and hybrid antenna designs reported for wearables and E-textile applications. Materials such as conductive fabrics and threads, conductive inks, and flexible circuit filaments will be discussed and evaluated. Finally, a tutorial will be presented on implementing a low-cost 2.4 GHz (Bluetooth/Wi-Fi) antenna for wearable applications. The antenna can be realised using off-the-shelf materials, scissors, a soldering iron and design formulas.
