UTA researchers develop sensors to think smart

Abstract:
Imagine a newborn baby’s nightgown that constantly monitors the infant’s body temperature and breathing, or a soldier in Iraq whose uniform transmits physiological signs to a central station. Husband and wife team Dr. Zeynep Celik-Butler and Dr. Donald Butler, researchers at the University of Texas at Arlington’s College of Engineering, envision a day when clothing will become a second skin. “Our long-term aim is to make artificial ‘skin’ that can get the signal out just as nerve cells do,” Celik-Butler said.
