Abstract: As technology becomes increasingly prevalent in today’s society, the smart textile industry is also witnessing rapid growth. This industry currently faces a gap in utilizing shape memory materials (SMM) in the production of smart textiles. This study aims to show the potential of SMMs for creating a smart fabric that is simultaneously stretchable, robust and effective. Specifically, it researches on a proof of concept using the Shimadzu 10 KN Tester to test for elasticity and different methods of twisting for uniform shrinkage. Next, studies were done on knitted samples of elastic and conductive thread to test for elasticity and conductivity. The results showed that the structure of the material plays an essential role in both elasticity and conductivity. On this basis, the detailed structure of manufacturing SMMs into an effective smart fabric that fulfils its objectives should be considered.
