Researchers work on smart clothing

Researchers at the Media Interaction Lab were granted the Google Faculty Research Award given twice annually in the category "Physical interactions with devices". Thus “eGlasses" is one of the 20 percent of the Google-funded research projects outside of the USA.

"We integrate conductive threads into the clothing, which can be used either as buttons or touch elements”, explained Michael Haller, Head of the Media Interaction Lab. In this way the wearers can, for example, control data glasses with his jacket, a smart watch with his watch band or a smart phone using the felt mobile phone cover.  

The researchers attach particular importance to fusing simple operability and fashionable aesthetics. The scientists also have running gear in mind which enables the user to use the music player simply by pulling on it. A further approach is the integration of proximity and temperature sensors to enable contactless operation, for example if one has dirty hands or wears gloves.

Austria is the European Champion for Public Transportation

Austrians love to take public transportation. No other European country can match the kilometers travelled by Austrians on trains, buses and street cars in proportion to the number of inhabitants. This is made possible primarily by the highly developed, modern and efficient transport infrastructure. But companies also make an important contribution to this.
