Wearable Cooling System - Overview Of Target Features

This illustration shows the target concept #CoolIndia wearable cooling system in a t-shirt. It incorporates these features:

  • Printed thermoelectric pads capable of cooling without fans. These pads would be able to harvest thermal energy from the body and use it to charge the battery. Sensors would also be printed.

  • Stretechable printed electrical traces. These screen-printed traces link the battery, PCB, sensors and thermoelectrics.

  • Connectivity to apps for smart devices and the Internet of things.

  • A flexible rechargeable battery.

  • A soft/flexible enclosure. The enclosure should have an ingress protection (IP) rating of 68. It should also be removable for washing the base garment.

  • A flexible printed circuit board (PCB). The PCB will have a standard connection, such as a USB 3 Type C, for charging and connecting to the traces. Power management on the board will enable harvesting thermal energy from the body to recharge the battery.

Hi Gerry, Nice design selection. Do you have links for the printable thermo electrics, to read more about them? The current peltier modules are bulky

Ravi Pujar On printing - take a look at this Tutorial post and let me know if you’d like to know more https://www.collaborizm.com/thread/SkEQJA6d-

I agree about off-the-shelf modules being bulky.

But there are options in between the existing modules and printing that will reduce the bulk in near-term products.

Custom modules are one option - these would be tailored to the application in the wearables. They would weigh less and be lower height-wise.

Another option is thin-film modules like the ones from Phononic - see: https://phononic.com/

Let me know if this is helpful, and if you have any other questions.
