Aktuelle Projekte

TextileUX: With growing interest in unobtrusive human-machine interfaces, garments and everyday objects covered with smart sensing textiles will become the interfaces of the future. In TextileUX, we are developing a novel sensing approach enabling a new kind of yarn-based, resistive pressure sensing. The core of TextileUX builds on a newly designed yarn, which features conductive and resistive properties. To show its versatility, we present different applications in the automotive domain using different textile manufacturing techniques, such as sewing, knitting, and weaving.

Innovation Playground: In this project, we are designing a collaborative creativity environment for supporting creative processes in workshops and meetings, focused on the following: 1) Novel Interior and Smart furniture designed to support different phases and situations in methodological workflows, and to provide the right space for creative, 2) Analysis of Methodologies to inform decisions on the design of the interior and accompanying toolset, and serve as a framework to drive structured creative approaches (e.g., Design Thinking,), and 3) Development of a Novel Toolset that combines the strengths of traditional mediums and modern hardware with methodological knowledge to provide effective support for efficient workshops and meetings, in combination with the interior.
