Project description

SMARTpro was an awareness creation and knowledge transfer trajectory supported by VLAIO within the VIS modality to stimulate collaboration in Flanders across the textiles, confection, electronics and ICT sectors on the topic of smart textiles and wearable intelligence.

Our group focused on the wearable intelligence aspects, with the goals of (1) demonstrating the underexploited potential of combining data from wearables and sensors present in a user's environment for advanced localization and personalized activity monitoring purposes, and (2) demonstrating concrete applications and opportunities that are enabled by this combination.

Three demonstrators illustrating the potential of this combination were built around three scenarios:


  • Ensuring a safe industrial working environment;



  • Promoting healthy habits in an office environment;



  • Supporting the monitoring of outdoor activities ambient-assisted living;
