Smart PPE and CPE Platform for Electric Industry Workforce
Smart textiles can monitor the state of people and their environment, and react appropriately according to the parameters they capture. They are considered ideal for personal protection equipment. Currently, the rate of accidents among workers is high in all types of industries. Most of those accidents are caused by the lack of prevention measures, poor safety training and obsolete safety systems which do no adapt technologically to the needs of today’s workplace. In this work is presented a intelligent system providing workers the tools they need to prevent a large percentage of accidents and create safe working environments.
