She explained that the protocol aims to contribute to the development of research and measurements in the common areas between the textile and microwave industries, and to cooperate in order to manufacture antennas, components and conduction paths integrated on the fabric by embroidering with threads with good electrical conductivity in order to develop “wearable devices” technology.
The protocol signed on an agreement includes cooperation in quality control operations and discovering errors in textile manufacturing processes through digital processing of images taken for the various production stages, in addition to cooperation in introducing RFID systems to monitor products stored in the company’s warehouses and determine their various data such as production history.
