The Cardioleaf electronic module snaps onto the shirt with 4 standard snaps. Simply turn off the device, un-snap the unit and throw the shirt in the wash. My FIT shirt shown in the video survived 3 washings.
It's not a product.... YET. Very cool, and I can see tons of market potential for this. Say the technology was integrated into Nike or Addidas sportswear... they could easily market this as a must have for athletes to track and monitor their own fitness, etc.
The only question is... how do you wash it without killing the sensors??
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
