The new demand

The traditional textile industry has served for years to come. Since the olden times till today, the textile industry has been responsible for providing fabrics, fiber and finished apparel, such as the modernized clothes we wear today, among many other things. However, the traditional system is now lagging, and modern demands and expectations from the textile industry such as the demand for items such as fitness trackers and wearable techniques, smart fabrics and smart clothes arise, which cannot be matched or met with outdated technology.

Therefore, the increased request for quality products, has resulted in automation and AI being necessary for modernization and upgrades. As with most traditional systems that have been upgraded today, artificial intelligence is the technology that is the key to improvement.

Applications of Artificial Intelligence in the Textile Industry

Automation and AI can be used by the textile industry to reduce labor and manufacturing costs and to deliver items according to our customers’ demands. The rise of new technologies, like AI and the Internet of Things (IoT), can modify and upgrade the textile business, which once was labor-intensive. In most textile industries, computerized machines are now available, and the production of specific designs on a large scale is significantly more efficient than that of people.

AI can access records of operational information in real time to provide insights that can increase operational efficiency. Some other applications that are quality of life improvements for the industry and manufacturing process are fault detection, pattern checking and color matching for textile production.

One other new possibility that has opened up due to the use of artificial intelligence In textile industry is smart clothing or “smart clothes” which use IOT and electronic sensors, and thereby provide a more pleasant health-oriented experience by utilizing these technologies. The artificial neural network (ANN) technology makes it easier to spot defects in models like weaving and knitting.

Machine learning has also made it possible to grade fabrics more objectively and to produce more consistent outcomes. AI benefits from the fine, solid, and staple fiber lengths, accurately determined using an artificial neural network.

The future of textiles

The future of textile technologies is one that is subject to heavy change, with the constant inflow of new technologies and innovations and rapid change. Textiles is one such industry where a wide variety of technologies can be applied to advance processes, and provide fresh new varieties of clothing, fabrics and fibers.
