Abstract


This paper describes the prototype of a smart jacket and offers several alternative ways of designing and arranging of electronic elements, which are based on ergonomic design guidelines, using principles of external and internal stress zoning in garments. Seven variants of arrangement are proposed, which are compared using decision making methods AHP and ELECTRE. One of the goals of this research is to carefully aggregate the available information and to rank different variants of arrangement using a set of criteria as objectively as possible. Comparing several variants of arrangement of electronic elements in clothing enables one to determine the most suitable variants according to the selected criteria.
