Abstract:

The following article is aimed at researching  textile-based simplified sensors to determine the human perspiration effect and sweat appearance on the body and wearing surface. Using the current flow and resistance drop effect over  cotton and polyester - based textile sensors, it is possible to detect  sweat appearance on their surface. The article presents how to conduct a new , low cost, textile sweat sensor designed especially for healthy persons. The sensors proposed are designed to detect the presence of sweat and not for precise measurements of sweat properties. The sensors proposed are of the resistive type, therefore the presence of perspiration causes a change in its resistance. The main novelty of the sensor proposed is that it is based only on textile materials. Additionally examples of resistance measurements of the sensors proposed are presented. The results of research on the influence of the substrate on the properties of the sensors proposed are also described.
