Abstract

In this paper, a new textile integrated WBAN based prototype for active body climate control is presented. The design of this prototype resulted from a previous evaluation system, which has been tested in a field study. In addition, new algorithms for determining the metabolic activity from measured vital parameters (heart rate and activity) and thus controlling the cooling mechanism by setting the necessary ventilation airflow have been conceived. A field study involving nine test persons has been conducted in order to test the new prototype and validate the conceived algorithms.
