Abstract

This paper presents a smart device-based thermostatic control system for cooling vest application. The whole system consists of three parts: a pump-based circulating cooling system, a temperature sensing module, and an Android-based application software. The smart device uses Bluetooth technology to receive temperature sensor datum from the vest. The thermostatic control App determines whether to turn the pump motor on or off in order to transmit the motor signal to the vest. One smart device can control and record multiple cooling or heating vests at the same time in order to easily manipulate and save resources. A simple experiment was designed and implemented to verify the effect of thermostatic control to the vests. The results showed that this system helps to enhance the duration of the cooling or heating system and provides high efficiency and flexibility. The future work will focus on biomedical signal monitoring and web-based remote control.
