Event details

Textiles offer an ideal substrate for embedding sensors for monitoring humans given that textiles are comfortable to wear and their uniquity. One means of integrating electronics, such as sensors, within textiles is to incorporate small electronic components within the structure of the yarns that the textile is comprised of; in this way a textile with normal textile properties such as breathability and drape can be created.

Dr Theodore Hughes-Riley is an Associate Professor in Electronic Textiles, and a member of the Advanced Textiles Research Group in the Nottingham School of Art and Design at Nottingham Trent University. His career has primarily concentrated on technology development with a strong multidisciplinary focus, exploiting his background in physics and experience with electronics to address challenges in other fields. His main research focus is on the development and characterization of novel textile-based sensors. He has a growing reputation in fields of wearable devices, electronic textile, and sensor technologies and has authored over 50 publications.
