Abstract: In recent years, interdisciplinary studies have been the mainstream in research discourses and practices. Depending on the degree on integration, the combination of electronics and textiles can be divided into three categories: wearable electronics, textronics and fibertronics. This research work focuses on integrating electronics and conventional garment to produce wearable electronic products. To fulfill the research objectives, the research work has been divided into two phases, Phase I involves integration of wearable electronics by developing specialty yarns and fabrics and Phase II consists of development of wearable electronic products, directly by integrating electronics in the fabric Cotton wrapped nichrome yarn was produced using braiding machine to develop nichrome wire embedded cotton fabric in knitted fabric for heating garment. Two patterns were made, sleeve round neck shape Tshirt pattern is taking high resistance when compared to sleeveless round neck shape T-shirt pattern, because length of the nichrome yarn used in sleeve pattern is higher. Heating garment has been developed with integration of PIC12F675 microcontroller based heat generating circuit with sleeveless round neck shape T-shirt pattern. The performance analysis of the circuits has been assessed using USB-1208FS DAQ card. Microprocessors and controllers of different technologies were used in this research work to accomplish the task of integrating textile and electronics. The fabrics and the garments produced were tested using a dedicated test rig developed for this research work. Software has been developed to communicate these garments at the remote end and testing of this software has been conducted. This research work provides the wearable electronics development needs to progress on the issue of user acceptability.
