Connected chair embedding smartness
AI and IoT in everyday objects
Vibration motors, embedded in the arm rests, provide alerts and feedback to users. They vibrate in different patterns depending on the type of feedback notification. Infrared sensors (IR), embedded in the seatback, measure the user’s spinal curvature and provide feedback to help users achieve neutral spinal alignment. Force sensitive resistors (FSRs), embedded in the seating surface, measure differences in pressure as the users leans to the left or right. These measurements help Buddy Chair determine a user’s posture.
