Abstract

Growing mobility demand in the western world intensifies the concern for automotive safety and health monitoring in daily life. This study shows one solution to integrate textile based, capacitively coupled electrocardiography into a car considering a real automotive environment. Electrodes based on conductive textile were integrated into a car seat. Contact ECG and non-contact CCECG measurements were done in different situations like driving high speed on highways, on surface streets, with various clothes and others. The influences of various car functionalities on the measurement were detected. Feasibility to measure Electrocardiography is discussed to evaluate continuous non-contact monitoring for safety, healthcare and comfort as well.
