Title: WEARABLE ELECTRONIC BELT DEVICE
Abstract:
A belt wearable by a human subject includes a variety of sensors that collect information about the wearer, the wearer's environment, and the wearer's movements. A communication interface on the belt allows sensor data collected by the belt to be transferred to a storage server. In some examples, the communication interface is a Wi-Fi interface, a cellular interface, or a removable memory interface. The data is processed to identify activities performed by the wearer such as walking, driving, and working at heights. In some examples, events such as aggressive driving events, slips and falls, and unsafe lifting are detected. In some examples, this information is used to generate reports that allow an employer to manage the productivity and safety of a workforce.
