Intelligent Clothing

Intelligent clothing incorporates high-tech electronics within its fabrics to perform services for the individual who wears such clothing. The Wearable Coach uses the latest microprocessors and motion sensors in conjunction with a wearer’s mobile device (e.g., cell phone or tablet) to teach correct form and motion for specific skills such as throwing a baseball.

The Wearable Coach

The Wearable Coach contains embedded microcontrollers and sensors that capture an athlete’s motion, compares that motion to correct motion as described in a prerecorded coaching script, and then provides coaching feedback with regards to how well the delivery is performed.

Feedback

Feedback includes but is not limited to:

  • Graphic display on a cell phone, tablet, or laptop of the athlete’s motion as compared to the desired motion, and
  • Vocal coaching as generated by the automation or from prerecorded professional coaches.
