The AUTONOTEX project
Was launched on the 25th of November 2015.
The main objective is the development of reactive and connected:
– individual protected clothing
– hospital linen
that will disseminate body-related information to their environment.
Thanks to a combination of new piezoelectric composite fibers,
it will be possible to recharge or maintain batteries of mobile devices, thus resulting in energetically autonomous clothes.
Electronics will be embedded on two to three component threads through
using nanotechnology for molecular compounding,
so that customers may enjoy new uses and services meeting their expectations.
The AUTONOTEX consortium is both large and balanced: 5 academic partners and 5 manufacturers (SMEs and large companies) take part in the initiative.
As the French Public Investment Bank, BPIfrance supports companies to boost the emergence of tomorrow’s economic champions.
