Textile-based sensors benefit from their high flexibility, low production cost and ability to monitor large scaled components making them particularly suitable for special application scenarios. For example, they are well suited for the monitoring of structural or human health states enabling the detection of mechanical stresses of composite components or physiological parameters in medical applications. Textile-based sensors can be integrated automatically into woven, knitted or non-crimp fabrics. Using these manufacturing techniques tailored simple one-dimensional or complex two-dimensional sensor layouts can be realized. By combining individual sensors to sensor networks, multiple parameters are detectable simultaneously.
