Transcript

  • 1. Sensors
    • Almost anything can be measured
    • Model of the system
    • Intelligence
    • Flower-pot sensor
      • humidity
      • temperature
      • light
      • request for attention
  • 2. Actuation
    • Information processing is easy
      • alarms, entertainment, communication, etc.
    • Simple electric control
    • Mechanical systems are difficult
    • Robotics
  • 3. Smart clothing and wearable technology
  • 4. What are wearable technology and smart clothing ?
    • Convergence products of Textile and ICT industries
    • How to
      • improve the functions of a garment?
      • bring new functions to a garment?
      • design the garment so that it can incorporate electronics?
      • design electronics that is embedded into a garment?
      • technology is used?
  • 5. Continuum wearable technology smart clothing intelligent textiles information appliances ICT Textile
  • 6. Wearable technology
    • Gadgets that have no use unless worn
    • Typically information processing, sensors, displays, communication
    • Context dependent data, time, place, user
    • Heart beat monitor, health monitors, medical measurement devices, etc.
  • 7. Swimmers distance meter
    • Clothing+ swimmers distance meter
    • Typical design
      • cheap sensors
      • novel signal processing algorithms
      • implementation on a micro controller
      • small display, few buttons
      • injection molded enclosure
    • Calculates the direction of movement of a swimmer using magnetic sensors and signal processing
    • Good results, commercial product
    • 2 MSc. thesis: algorithms and HW
  • 8. Smart clothing
    • Clothing with enhanced functionality
    • Enhanced basic functions
      • protection
      • looks
      • pockets
    • Additional functions
      • communication
      • measurements
      • etc.
  • 9. Electrically heated clothing
    • Technologies Enabling Smart Clothing - project
    • Research on usability of electric heating in garments
      • usability
      • technologies
      • energy balance
      • effect on sweating
      • measures
        • temperature
        • humidity
        • power consumption
      • controls heating
    Please, don’t laugh.
  • 10. Intelligent textiles
    • Functional textile materials, smart materials
    • No (electronic) information processing
    • Phase change materials, color changing materials, micro porous matarials, bioactive materials
    • Use also as components for
      • sensors
      • actuators
      • information transfer, wires, antennas
  • 11. Wearable user interfaces
    • Information appliance can be used as a user interface to a wearable system
    • Includes a display, keyboard, local communication link
    • Often has a internet communication link
    • Programmable
      • Resources in the appliance
      • Tools available
      • People available
    • E.g. as an interface to medical sensors embedded into clothing
  • 12. Promising field of application
    • Promising field of application for smart clothing and wearable technology is
    • Physiological measurements
      • Medical applications
      • Elderly care
      • Sports
