Sensor suit being tested in science TV show
Under the lead of Budelmann Elektronik a research group developed a sensor suit called SIRKA. This suit is being developed for employees working in dockyards and emergency services. It helps to recognize physical overload and points out alternative motion patterns. Integrated sensors measure the movements of its bearer and give a warning during harming movements. For a TV report for a German science television program (“Wissen vor 8 Zukunft”) the suit and its functionality are being tested. It’s great to see that months of hard work finally pay off and the suit works accordingly. Click on the video to see how host Adrian Pflug tries the sensor suit.
