QOOWEAR, Advanced Connected Worker Technologies: World’s first Smart Interconnected Heating Suite for sub-zero Oil&Gas workers.

Project description

Smart heating suit improves safety for sub-zero workers

Over 9 million people worldwide work in sub-zero environments, with 200 000 of these in oil and gas rigs in North Europe. Protecting them adequately without hampering movement is a special issue resolved by QOOWEAR through its unique ‘Smart Interconnected Heating Suit’ (SIHS). This AI-controlled heating garment has embedded sensors that monitor the surrounding environment, detect the parts of the body that are the coldest, and warm them. The ‘connected worker’ wears the ultra-lightweight and anti-sweat suit next to the skin as a base layer. Besides boosting working efficiency, the system allows companies to monitor the health of workers and predict threatening conditions through the use of collected biodata, warning the company with pop-up alerts.
