Research on flexible lighting devices by means of deposition
ROLLING LIGHTS consortium project-Research in flexible lighting devices by
means of roll-to-roll deposition techniques for textile architecture has the
general objective to provide the field of textile architecture with new technologies
to make flexible lighting devices, with features such as ambient lighting,
visibility and marketing.
Applications such as marquees, awnings, umbrellas,
billboards and tents offer the potential to integrate an electroluminescent
function to earn market value from the point of view of marketing, advertising
and environmental lighting. The goal of the ROLLING LIGHTS project is to obtain
a fabric capable of emitting light and that maintains the inherent properties
of textiles (flexibility, softness, comfort, etc.). Currently, there is no
market where there is an electroluminescent fabric printed directly with EL
technology; therefore, it is a first in the world. Project website. This
project is funded by ACC1Ó and co-financed by the European Regional Development
Fund (ERDF) under the Operational Programme for Catalonia 2007-2013.
