Smart Textile Research Group

General Introduction

The goal of Smart Textile Convergence Research Group is to develop new functional textiles which contain the properties of sensor, energy storage and luminescence by combining nano-technology (NT) or energy-technology (ET) with the traditional textile technology. We are aiming to contribute to the improvement of the technology as well as international competitiveness of the regional textile companies by developing the core smart textile technology. Consequently, it will promote the development of the regional industry.

Research Objective

Development of technologies for textile-type wearable sensor, flexible battery, luminescent fiber.
