The fundamental and applied design in material science involves machine learning and big data tools, The statistical data generated by the sensors and components in smart wearable’s response to activate the smart device based on our requirements. The flexibility and weight reduction concept applied for textiles sensors, due to the principle of fabric formation knitted technology plays important role in designing of wearable and smart textiles. The sensing elements in the fabric formed as loop in fabric design or embedded in smart device. This paper highlights the overview of various knitted fabric design and its techniques adopted to form a sensors for various applications.
