Project Description

We are looking for talented undergraduates to contribute to a few ongoing research projects about intelligent wearables/ textile manufacturing/design problems: 1) developing large-scale sensing wearables based on versatile textile manufacturing techniques, such as machine knitting and embroidery; 2) developing a design framework for artists and even novice users to create customized knitted goods with various shapes, styles, patterns, textures, and functionalities; 3) developing a real-to-sim framework to bridge the machine knitted structure and predictive physically-based simulator.

Pre-requisites

Interest in knitting.
