Abstract
New wireless wearable monitoring systems integrated in professional garments require a high degree of reliability and autonomy. Active textile antenna systems may serve as platforms for body-centric sensing, localization and wireless communication systems, in the meanwhile being comfortable and invisible to the wearer. New design strategies combined with dedicated signal processing techniques greatly enhance the robustness of these systems. On the one hand, the large amount of real estate available in public regulated services' garments may be exploited to deploy multiple textile antennas. On the other hand, the size of each radiator may be designed large enough to ensure high radiation efficiency when deployed on the body. This antenna area is then reused by placing active electronics directly underneath and energy harvesters directly on top of the antenna patch. We illustrate this design paradigm by means recent textile antenna prototypes integrated in professional garments, providing sensing, positioning and communication capabilities.
