TechTextil, the leading international trade fair for technical textiles, will take place in Frankfurt from today to 26 April. On this occasion, Grassi Spa will present the new Smart High Visibility Vests within the Innovation Forum organized by SMI-TexClubTec in Pavilion 12.1 Stand B31C.

Nowadays the Digital Transformation has changed the concept of business in any industrial sector bringing the companies face huge changes in international market.
These changes touched also the most expert companies operating in the technical textile sector and in the world of protection and workwear.
As Digital Transformation pioneer in technical clothing sector, in recent years, Grassi SpA has designed smart garments that represent a real interconnection system as well as provide the traditional high technical quality. Therefore Grassi innovations offer not only a garment with high technical and protective performance, but also a real advanced service. The new smart clothes designed by Grassi SpA are able to collect the environmental signals coming from the surroundings and the position of worker. The user protection is the main aim for Grassi SpA and for this reason the designed sensor system monitors environmental and motion parameters for the entire duration of a working activity carried out in dangerous or isolated environments (high temperatures, presence of harmful gases, mountains, etc) to minimize external intervention times in case of workplace accidents.
An application of this sensor system is Grassi high visibility vest integrated with AI Sensing Miniaturized Technology. This device in only 5 cm is able to record data related to position and motion of worker and environmental parameters as temperature, humidity and hazardous gases. These data are recorded in real time, sent to a platform with a Wifi/Bluethoot connection and also stored into the device.
Visual and audible alarms are triggered alerting the operator about the danger and alarm signal is sent through smartphone at the company safety responsible dashboard app for worker rescue.
The Smart High Visibility Vest that Grassi Spa is designing put their base on the definition and management of a continuous interconnection and a continuous information exchange: an active correlation between the garments wearer, the used clothes and the surrounding must be created.
This is just a taste of the great potential of IoT and smart solutions universe applied in Grassi production for the next future.
