Wardrobe monitor, a smart choice!

Aug '07
“The average suit should be cleaned after between eight and 12 wearings but people often lose track of when their clothes were last dry-cleaned and how often they have been worn since then,” Toney said. “Our wardrobe monitor can record garment usage, as well as deliveries to and pickups from drycleaners.

“The technology can also help people make the most of accessorizing and mixing their wardrobe. It can be connected to an autonomous fashion butler on the internet, which can suggest clothing choices for casual or formal outings with accessories to match,” Toney said.

For the person on the move, the technology can be adapted to preload news, music and daily schedules into smart garments.

And it could be the answer to those annoying mobile phone calls that interrupt important meetings. While the silent vibrating function is less intrusive, taking the phone out to check who's calling can still disrupt proceedings. With integrated electronics, wearers of the smart suit can determine the importance of a call by observing a tiny flashing LED light that can be seen in the cuff of their jacket.

Smart clothing can also be used for monitoring heart or respiratory function, other vital statistics and activity levels, making it useful for at home outpatient care and for people with dementia.

The research is being undertaken by Toney and final year computer systems engineering student Wynand Marais, under the supervision of Prof Thomas.
