Electronics textiles are fabrics allowing electronic objects like sensors, lights, batteries, and microcontrollers to be implanted in them whereas smart clothes are fabrics that are developed using technology for added value. Both are different types of material, however, smart clothing makes use of e-textiles as per requirement. E-textiles are an example of seamless integration between electronics and textiles, and in many instances, e-textiles may not necessarily be wearing material, they may be used for interior decoration. As per a report submitted by Cientifica Research, e-textiles are broadly classified into 3 types: the first-generation are companies or textile companies that attach sensors to the clothing items, currently incorporated by brands like Adidas, and Nike. Second generation e-textiles embed the sensor within the garment like Samsung, Ralph Lauren, and the third generation is where the garment itself acts as a sensor that is temperature, rain, and pressure sensitive.
