A textile-based heat flux sensor

Author

Abstract
With the emergence of smart textiles, the research into textile-based sensors has increased as well. These sensors have the advantage of being flexible, and compatible with clothing thus more unobtrusively integratable and more comfortable to wear. On the other hand, one of the purposes of clothing is to enhance the thermal comfort of the wearer. Therefore, a textile-based sensor that can measure the heat flux between the body and its surrounding micro environment has been developed and manufactured on an industrial scale. The sensor is a woven structure and the sensing component is a thermoelectric wire inserted during the weaving process. In this way a flexible and breathable heat flux sensor is obtained.
