Imagine a technology which is an artificial muscle and is integrated into textiles...

Such a smart textile has huge application potential and can support people in many different ways. The garment would use haptic feedback (i.e. the use of touch to guide the user) or could serve as a discrete way of information transfer and is closely related to bodily tasks of movement and physical awareness.

Having these smart textiles available, can you think of an application area or use cases in the field of work safety?

 

Background information: The smart textile is being developed by an international research project team funded by the European Commission called WEAFING (= Wearable Electroactive Fabrics Integrated In Garments). Head to https://www.weafing.eu/ for more information.
