Human Thermal Sensor & Smart Clothing 2.0
Pekka Tuomaala

15:00 - 18:00​15:00 - 18:00

Human Thermal Sensor (HTS) is a new paradigm for individual control of thermal environment. This smart control concept is able to define optimal temperature set-point for an individual by monitoring current space parameters (i.e., temperatures, air flow velocity, and relative humidity) and occupant data (activity level and clothing).

Safety, security, and well-being can be improved by introducing new features for future garments. For example, by tracking workers on a construction site we can generate on-line warnings in case of somebody approaching dangerous zones, functional garments can improve thermal satisfaction and working performance of outdoor workers, and movement sensors can detect both accidents (enabling automated alarms) and trajectories (for athletes and physiotherapists).
