Humidity and temperature are considered to be important factors in designing comfortable seat surfaces. A small number of studies have attempted to address this;however the methods used were limited regarding the placement of their sensors. This study aimed to design a sensor array system to investigate changes in humidity and temperature for eventual use in the study of factors affecting sitting comfort and incontinence detection. The system was subjected to three types of experiments: sensor… CONTINUE READING
