Abstract

LED lighting is applied to clothing. It allows a flexible method to provide illumination of lighting. A family of converter topologies is proposed to give this simply method of power conversion. Analysis for the circuits in terms of output power, efficiency and general operation are provided. Two types of LED lighting clothing are developed. One is using super-bright LED embedded on the cloth. This gives active lighting instead of passive lighting. Another one is using optical fibre with grating to form lighting pattern.
