KurzbeschreibungConcepts and methods to integrate mobile computers into our daily outfit.
Textile sensors: strain, pressure, temperature, ECG, EMG
New substrates (eTextile, Smart Textile), organic material (foils)
State-of-the-art in Wearable Systems and components
Economical conditions
Evaluation of research institutions, groups, projects and proposals.
LernzielTo integrate wearable computers also commercially successful in our daily outfit, innovative sensing and communication technologies as well as economical and ethical aspects have to be considered.

The course deals with
> Textile Sensors: strain, pressure, temperature, ECK, EMG, ...
> Packaging: new substrates (eTextiles), organic material (foils)
> State-of-the-art and research in Wearable components and systems.
> Privacy and Ethics

Using a business plan we will practice the commercialisation of our 'Wearable Computers'.

Supported by a wiki-tool the course is organized as a seminar, in which the addressed topics are jointly discussed considering the aspect 'Concept of a research proposal'. According to the ETH 'critical thinking initiative' we will analyse and reflect implementation concepts incorporating the social and scientific context. Presentations alternate with workshops and discussions. Instead of an oral examination a thesis in a form of a project proposal can be submitted.

The audience determines the used language (German or English)
