Smart Fashion & eTextile

Amyx+ helps Fortune 500 enterprises and game-changing startups with wearables & IoT strategy, innovation, data analytics and product development. We have worked with leading blue chip companies and growth-stage startups across wearables, healthcare, consumer electronics, retail, apparel and footwear, luxury, fitness, advertising and major industries to help sharpen their wearables & IoT strategies. Here are a few sample case studies.

Case Study 1: Kinetic & Thermal Energy Harvesting and Thermo-Regulated Garments

A publicly-traded footwear and apparel company engaged Amyx+ to conduct preliminary research and analysis on available technologies and future R&D in advanced garment and e-textile capabilities. They were interested in kinetic (piezoelectric and electromagnetic technologies) and thermal energy that could harvest human energy with limited friction, creating a reliable and easily accessible source of power. They also wanted to explore thermal regulated e-textiles for active or passive heating and cooling systems. Based on the technology due diligence and feasibility assessment, the client wanted to use the analyses to inform their product technology roadmap.

Case Study 2: IoT-Enabled Smart Bags

Amyx+ is working with an international market leader in backpacks, suitcases and handbags to strengthen their holistic needs-based strategy with IoT-enabled smart bags. Project goals are to heighten brand engagement and loyalty, increase value proposition of their products and develop new SaaS subscription revenue stream from data analytics.

Case Study 3: Hybrid System-in-Foil

A specialty materials company was interested in understanding the evolving role of hybrid system-in-foil or combining printed circuitry with traditional Si components in wearables and e-textile applications. They wanted to know the key drivers for hybrid SiF in wearables, what are the near- and long-term opportunities, and what are the key challenges to overcome for large-scale manufacturing wearable devices and e-textiles that are thin, flexible, stretchable and washable?
