Rapid prototyping of smart garments for activity-aware applications

Abstract Continuous miniaturization of electronics and sensing elements stimulate the evolution of novel unobstrusively integrated smart garments that sense their environemnet and provide personalized assistance to its wearer. The development of smart garments requires robust integration techniques for electronics and textiles in one common system. Furthermore, recognition algorithms are needed to derive information on the [...]

On-Body Sensing: From Gesture-Based Input to Activity-Driven Interaction

Abstract Recently, systems have emerged that utilize a broad range of sensors to facilitate gesture and motion-based interaction. Examples range from multitouch surfaces to tilt control to complex, motion-based game controllers. As these technologies become mainstream, research is already focusing on the next step: activity-driven, implicit interaction. Comments General discussion of future wearable biosensors: next-generation [...]
