Development of low-cost smart training pants (STants), Sarvenaz Salehi
Mrs. Salehi gives a thorough description of the smart training pants that DFKI (German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence) has designed and already produced as a working prototype. A most characteristic example of real “wearables”, these pants contain an array of sensors that send continuously via Bluetooth information to a designated mobile device about the vital statistics of the user ie. that could be an athlete, soldier or patient. Interviewed by Yannis Rizopoulos for Tech Talks Central.
