DELAWARE – Researchers at the University of Delaware (UD) have developed a method of coating textile fibres with a flexible carbon nanotube composite that is able to measure applied forces ranging ‘from the light touch of a fingertip to being driven over by a forklift’, the team says.

The sensing technology has been tipped for applications in smart clothing as it is said to be both cost-effective and easy to scale up. The nanocomposite can be applied to textile fibres including cotton, nylon and wool, as a film is formed around these materials using a process known as electrophoretic deposition (EPD).
