SensorKnits Are Machine-Friendly E-Textile Sensors Developed at MIT

None of those nice, warm wool sweaters you see at the department store were knitted by hand — that would be prohibitively expensive. Instead, they were created on industrial knitting machines that can be programmed to weave all sorts of patterns. In order for e-textiles, and their corresponding sensors, to be commercially-viable, they’ll need to take advantage of those same machines. That’s why a team of researchers from MIT have developed SensorKnits, which are machine-friendly e-textile sensors.
