MARSIAN (Modular Autonomous Recorder System for the measurement of Autonomic Nervous System activity) is an ambulatroy measurement and monitoring portable system designed for the evaluation of emotional and sensorial reactions, especially in case of thermal comfort and discomfort.
Smart textiles integrate sensors, and communication system. Its own fibers have an active role of sensing or communication, in addition with its natural mechanical role.
There are 2 kinds of smart clothes :
- the biomedical smart clothes that are in direct contact with skin : woven sensors, woven metallic electrodes and micro devices are integrated in the textile.
- the communicative smart clothes : the devices are included in the superficial layers or on the surface of the textile mainly for communication.
MARSIAN is composed of four elements : smart glove, smart shirt, wrist system and a data logger.
The research topics are numerous.
