Abstract

Recently Electronic Textile (E-Textile) technology enables the weaving computation and communication components into the clothes that we wear and objects that we interact with every day. E-Textile enables the design and development of a broad range of pervasive sensing systems such as smart bed sheets for sleep posture monitoring, insoles in medical shoes for monitoring plantar pressure distribution, smart garments and sensing gloves. However the low cost of E-Textiles come at the cost of accuracy. In this work we propose an actuator-based method that increases the accuracy of E-Textiles by means of enabling real-time calibration. Our proposed system increases system accuracy by 38.55% on average (maximum 58.4%).
