Touch on Smart Clothing, Tacterion Sensor Skin

Posted by Charbax – May 2, 2016

Tacterion is a spin-off from the German aerospace center at the Robotics and Mechatronics Center to develop tacterion, a new kind of tactile sensor. Tacterion offers polymer-based tactile sensors called Artificial Skin for Robotics, MedTech or as a new kind of input device in Human-Machine-Interaction in Smart Clothing. The rubber foil-like Artificial Skin sensor is connected to Tacterion's readout electronic component that translates physical interaction into data which digital systems can process.

HiCling clingband uses UICO Duratouch wristSENSE to detect when it’s being used

Posted by Charbax – April 27, 2016

Duratouch Wristsense allows wearables to detect if the wearable is being worn or not. Going through the plastics, it allows to reliably know if the smartwatch or the sports band is being worn, which can then allow the device's software to turn off other sensors such as heartrate, tracking, when it's not being worn by the user.

Smell sensor for smartphones, Aroma Bit Odor Imaging Sensor

Posted by stromium – February 26, 2016

Tokyo-based Aroma Bit showcases their odor imaging sensor technology, they claim to be able to make a unique sensor to analyze the subjective matter of smell, rather than simply to analyze the contents of the gas. The setup on display shows how a bottle opened nearby produces a digital odor signature on the screen. The sensor prototype is mounted on an SD card. The device learns about the signature of each smell it encounters, becoming smarter.
