Wearable P2P Communication System Organization on Digital Yarn

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 214)


A wearable computing has been proposed as an alternative to the best computing interfaces and devices for these ubiquitous computing. A digital garment accounts a key element of wearable computing. We will apply digital yarn as a material of data communications for the purpose to take advantage a digital garment. This paper proposes the architecture and transmission processes for peer-to-peer (P2P) communications using a digital yarn.
