Abstract

Safety at work is driving the development of new technological solutions in the era of Industry 4.0. Among others, systems able to monitor physiological parameters are gaining high relevance since such devices have the potential to improve the workers' safety. In this perspective, the respiratory rate can provide useful information since it is sensitive to many environmental stressors. In this study, we focused on the development of a test bench to assess the performance of a wearable system for respiratory monitoring. The presented system achieves data collection and synchronization from FBG sensors, a reference flowmeter and, an M-IMU unit. In addition, a GUI has been developed in order to guide the volunteer in the execution of selected movements during the experimental session. The proposed system could further facilitate the design and development of solutions for assessing wearables for workers' activities monitoring.
