The Textile Industry Research Association, AITEX, has entrusted Cuatroochenta, within the E-BRODER II project funded by IVACE, the development of a platform that allows the management of IoT sensors (input and output) integrated into fabrics.
The system stores and communicates the information collected by the sensors in charge of detecting stimuli, such as pressure, or variables such as temperature and humidity, with those who are carrying out a specific action. For example, a sensor built into a chair can detect the pressure (input) when a person sits in it and sends this information to another sensor that then turns on a certain light (output). In this case, the system works as an intermediary between the function of one sensor and that of the other.
Internet of Things (IoT)
The platform with which Cuatroochenta collaborates with AITEX facilitates communication between sensors that follows the IFTTT server protocol, which allows actions and tasks to be programmed and automated via the internet using the website or the app.
The sensors integrated by AITEX in the tissues detect stimuli. The sensors are connected to the platform, which not only allows connection with the IoT output sensors, but also connection between these sensors with other elements. In this way, the system enables interaction with products from other brands (Xiaomi, Philips Hue, Google Home, Alexa…).
The project has the support of the Conselleria d’Economia Sostenible, Sectors Productius, Comerç i Treball de la Generalitat Valenciana through IVACE, and is co-financed by EU ERDF funds, within the ERDF Operational Programme of the Valencian Community 2014–2020. FILE: IMDEEA / 2019/57 – 2019.
