Unobtrusive wearable human to machine wireless interface

(WEAR-A-BAN)

 
Project Overview
 
The objective of Wear-a-BAN project was to investigate and demonstrate ultra-low power wireless body-area-network (WBAN) technologies for enabling unobtrusive human to machine interfaces (HMI) into SME-driven market segments of smart fabrics / interactive textiles (SFIT), robotics for augmented reality assistance and rehabilitation, and natural interfacing devices for video gaming.
 
The results of this project generated high societal and market impact for the European SMEs, and enabled major technological breakthroughs in the areas of ultra-low power radio system-on-chips (SoC) and of textile-oriented system-in-package (SiP) platforms for miniature wearable antennas, wireless and sensor electronics and digital signal processing.
