WE LIGHT aims to create prototypes of sportswear items integrated with different electronic, optical and sensor technology systems able to connect the person wearing it with the external environment. The project’s main goal is to guarantee greater safety for those who practice road sports, in particular cyclists and runners. These highly functional garments are equipped with electronic devices, light sources and sensors with on-off mode in relation to the conditions of the external environment (external brightness, humidity and temperature). Wearable devices have a support designed with 3D models and are encapsulated within innovative materials capable of dissipating thermal energy.
- Realization of the wearable lighting system based on LED light and diffusive optical fibers.
- Device packaging and integration with sportswear.
- Realization of wearable IoT system.
- Smart t-shirt prototype development.
