Abstract

Despite strong development effort inside R&D departments over the last decade smart textiles are still available only on the prototype level. One of the main reasons goes to the technology, which has not been developed or adopted for a serial production yet. Neither the market is ready to accept high prices beside the limited functionality smart textiles still have. The main objective of the paper is to present the relation “problem/solution fit” and “product/market fit” by the development of the smart textile product, the Textile Heating System which has been successfully transferred from prototype to a scale up level.
