Smart Clothing That Automatically Cools Itself

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd has recently developed a technology that can be utilized in smart fabrics and clothing to cool or warm the wearer according to his or her needs as part of their Smart Clothing project.

This new technology essentially determines the wearer’s body temperature, and automatically adjusts accordingly so “the thermal sensation of the person wearing the smart clothing remains optimal in varying conditions,” stated VTT.

“The technology is based on the Human Thermal Model calculation tool developed by VTT, enabling the calculation of a person’s individual thermal sensation” (ultimately caused by differences in body composition) “from the prevailing conditions,” VTT reported.

“VTT is now looking for companies to join in the development and productisation of this technology for the market,” said VTT Principal Scientist Pekka Tuomaala.
