Abstract

The Sun-powered Textiles project has designed and developed a textile collection suitable for solar energy harvesting. In textile-based wearables, the solar cells can be concealed behind the textile for aesthetic reasons, which enables a broader freedom of design while still producing enough energy to power wearable devices. As a research result, we showcase a solar cell jacket prototype with temperature and humidity sensors.
