TSP-technology – Tailored Sensor Placement

On this page we give a short introduction to the new developed textile sensors made with innovative Tailored Sensor Placement (TSP).


  • health monitoring basing on signals that derive directly out of defined areas of the fibre reinforced matrix
  • signals are also good for measuring and not for detection only
  • DMC – direct material control


All materials used apply to the matrix of the fibre reinforced structure. Doing so they do prevent from de-lamination of layers or weakening components used inside.

process and technology:

  • our system is based on embroidery technology which can add functional components like interconnections and electronic parts to a fabric ground
  • the newly developed application technology is called TSP – tailored sensor placement
  • TSP connects textiles made of glass, aramid, basalt or carbon with functional structures like sensor areas, feed lines and contact points
  • TSP includes also reliable contacts of wires with diameter 0,05 – 0,1 mm, device test and cutting of devices
  • next these sensor preforms are suitable for integration in fibre reinforced parts
  • possible technologies are RTM for duroplast or dry preforming with thermoplast constructions


Light weight structures made of fibre reinforced components can directly generate precise sensor signals. This is a new option for structures with need for advanced functional density like device monitoring for security or performance reasons.

fields of application:

  • engineering
  • mobility sector
  • wind power plants
  • sports equipment
  • health/ medical devices
  • construction area
