Interview with AiQ Smart Clothing
About AiQ Smart Clothing: A pioneer in smart clothing, AiQ originated as the Innovation Group within KingsMetal Fiber, specializing in stainless steel fiber-based woven fabric. The growth of IoT has introduced numerous low-power sensors, yet non-invasive sensing of human conditions remains a challenge. AiQ envisions a transformative shift in healthcare with technologies and regulations in place. While awaiting the day when sensors can be integrated into the human body, AiQ currently leverages textile form factors as a second skin layer to collect physiological information. By merging semiconductors with textiles, AiQ creates intelligent apparel connected to PAN, LAN, and WAN networks. This innovation aims to solve specific issues or enhance daily life. AiQ distinguishes Smart Clothing and e-Textiles as additional nodes in the broader IoT network, emphasizing that not all applications are wearables. Examples include smart mattresses for sleep monitoring and intelligent automobile upholstery.
