Title Motion sensitive clothing
Abstract Pervasive systems have a vast potential to provide novel assistive solutions, in particular in personalized health and sports applications. Recent research has been directed to develop smart monitoring garments with integrated sensors and processing functionalities to address these fields. It was found that clothing is an ideal platform for sensing and recognizing activities in natural out-of-lab settings. This paper discusses approaches to activity monitoring using smart garments and introduces the smart shirt (SMASH), a prototyping platform for quick exploration of options and challenges in development of convenient sensing garments. We discuss the primary challenge to obtain casual sitting cloths that can robustly identify activities at the same time.
