Researchers Have Found A Better Way To Interconnect Wearable Tech.
Most of the wearable products use sensors that make use of Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to transmit data. Currently, the wearables connect using radio-waves which moves outwards, leading to loss of energy. Researchers from the National University of Singapore have come up with a new way for these devices to communicate.
They incorporated conductive textiles into clothing to dynamically connect several wearable devices at once.
This lets the devices to transmit data with a signal that is stronger by 1,000 times, significantly improving the battery life.
It can now have better applications, such as medical interventions, health monitoring, and human-machine interfaces. Enhancing our usual clothing with conductive textiles would let the metamaterials create surface waves that would be able to travel around the body via the clothes. Since the signals would be close by, the wearables would use less energy and be able to sense weaker signals.
The signals would be able to allow power to be wirelessly transmitted between the devices, making battery-free wearable tech devices a reality. Since the metamaterial works with devices in the specific frequency band, no changes need to be made. It also offers more privacy. The smart clothes have been designed so that it can be folded without any loss of signal strength.
