P8.1 - Textile Sensors for the Vehicle Interior

W. Scheibner, K. Ullrich, A. Neudeck & U. Möhring
The insertion of thread-like sensors changing their properties reproducibly upon varying environmental conditions is one favoured means of equipping textiles in the vehicle interior with sensory capabilities. In this way, for example, the tensile load and the compressive force which are exerted on textiles can be easily supervised using sensor fibres which alter their electrical resistance when they are stretched or pressed, respectively. In applying such sensors, existing as well as newly developed textiles can...
