Measuring movement of denim trousers for garment-integrated sensing applications.

Abstract

The movement of everyday garments over the body surface during wearing often presents a problematic source of noise or error for garment-integrated wearable sensors. This paper describes early results of an assessment of the impact of body location and garment ease on movement of the garment over the body surface. The method implemented uses a running mannequin with a repeatable gait cycle as the source of humanoid motion, and measures the movement of a set of custom-graded denim trousers in 5 ease amounts over the mannequin's surface during the gait cycle. Initial results show consistent patterns of displacement over the body surface.
