It is a body of faculty
and students from Department of Textile Technology, IIT Delhiwho are working on
developing novel intelligent, smart and functional materials for textile
applications. The research group is working very closely with Indian
Industry in developing Smart Textiles or Intelligent Textile materials and taking some of these technologies to commercial scale.
Prof. Ashwini AgrawalandProf. Manjeet Jassal, faculty, IIT Delhi and their group have core competency in the field of Smart Textiles and have developed several
active technologies. These technologies are radically changing the
functionality of textile by creating sensitive, interactive and
intelligent textile materials.
SMITA Group has been instrumental in:
national facility, where both basic research and technology development
for industrial applications are being carried out in the area of
smart textile using innovative materials such as nanoparticles,
nanofibres, nano-surface engineering, phase change materials, and stimuli
Bringing together expertise from academia and industry
to facilitate development of new technologies/products.
Creating trained manpower that
can assist industry in further research, product development, and
production of smart textile based on new technologies.
