Abstract

In this project, solar harvesting and sound sensing are inputs for energy and mood, whilst power consumption for electronic devices and colour changing through lighting are the corresponding outputs. Between each set of input and output, there are key steps in processing, computing and testing which determine the working of the system. Purposed built printed-circuit
boards (PCBs) are designed and made by integrating, programming and implementing ICs. For the energy system, a PCB is required for storing and conditioning the power from the PVs, and it uses a programmable microcontroller to decode the wearer’s mood intelligibly through a microphone in the information system. In this paper, how the actual SMART clothing photonic system named “MoodWear” works from energy harvesting to mood changing will be described and the collection of which will finally be presented.
