Abstract:A module is developed to measure the risk of mild hypothermia of the Sheltersuit user. This module is placed inside an extra pocket on the chest of the Sheltersuit. The aim is to make the lives of homeless people safer. In this project, context analysis was execulted, tests were done to find temperature thresholds, and a prototype was created. The final prototype measures the temperature inside the Sheltersuit and the shivering of the user. Then it adapts its output notification to the risk level of the user.
