eMob Project (Completed)

The project objective is to develop intelligent textiles for upholstery with thermoelectric and lighting functions easily integrated into the manufacturing process of the upholstered furniture.

Results achieved:

- Construction of three prototypes incorporating the technologies chosen:
      • Couch with climate control textile.
      • Pouf with integrated LED technology.
      • Headboard with electroluminescent technology.
- Evaluation and testing of the various prototypes developed.

Main activities:

- Investigate the different smart textiles technologies available. Evaluate the pros and cons of integration into furniture.
- Adapt and develop manufacturing techniques for efficient integration.
- Conduct extensive performance and security testing.
