Abstract

In both Norway and Sweden, an average of 25 people each year lose their life in road accidents. Many feel unsafe when they walk in traffic. Road safety is important in order to prevent traffic accidents, which is a social problem and a major economic expense each year. The visibility of pedestrians can also reduce insecurity on an individual level. The Swedish School of Textiles has been an inspiration for the future textiles, Smart Textiles, where technology meets traditional textiles and allows for opportunities to combine light and technique of elasticity, comfort and washability. The international fashion industry has shown the trends in a wide range.
