Intelligent Fashion Interfaces — Questions to New Challenges of Classifying

  • Astrid Ullsperger
Part of the Studies in Classification, Data Analysis, and Knowledge Organization book series (STUDIES CLASS)


This paper describes challenges of new intelligent fashion interfaces (ifi’s) for context awareness systems, ambient intelligence, wearable electronics, other smart applications and classification consequences. Classifying possibilities in different dimensions will be discussed. One approach for structuring intelligent fashion interfaces could be the 7th skin model. Especially the collection and utilization of data from sensor networks in textiles and clothing will provide new supporting structures for context awareness systems.
