Abstract or Description:

This paper presents preliminary results from a study on woven pleated electronic textiles (e-textiles) sensors, with a focus on prototyping, 3D structures, and measuring electrical resistance in woven sensors. The research is a starting point for a larger project exploring the interaction between sensors and the human body, investigating how these structures can be utilised in dynamic settings. To date, knitted materials have been most commonly employed in e-textiles, known for their use of a single yarn and high stretchability. This paper serves as an initial exploration into incorporating stretch into woven textiles for the purpose of recording electrical resistance. Initial pleated structures were identified using Nishijin weaving to construct pleated conductive materials. The results underscore that a critical factor in using woven pleats as input devices lies in the combination of yarns and the construction of the woven pleat.
