PPE Monitoring Using Wearable Technology

Client: Amazonas Distribuidora de Energia

The project, contemplated through Public Call for R&D projects 2015/2016, consisted of developing an experimental version of clothing for fieldwork technicians at Amazonas Distribuidora de Energia.  The main idea was to provide the PPE suit with intelligence to minimize workplace risks and accidents.

An Android app was developed to initiate and complete an operation using the new PPE suit, whose main functions are to verify the presence or absence of PPE equipment, store sensor and GOPRO camera data and communicate with the client-server application.
