Dr. Juan Haladjian receives Honorable Mention Award at ISWC 2016

Software Campus graduate Dr. Juan Haladjian received his doctorate from the Technical University of Munich and researched his project eTextIDE, in which so-called “intelligent” garments are equipped with electronic elements, in cooperation with his Software Campus partner Deutsche Telekom AG. With the app TangoHapps developed for this purpose, users should be able to create the software for exactly these eTextiles through visual programming without any experience.

Juan now published a paper on his microproject entitled “Interactex: An Integrated Development Environment for Smart Textiles” at the International Symposium on Wearable Computers 2016 (ISWC) and received the Honorable Mention Award for his outstanding work. His paper thus ranks among the top 3% of the 132 entries submitted and represents an extraordinary advance in the field of ubiquitous computing, especially for textiles with electronically integrated elements. Furthermore, with Interactex he creates a novel development environment, which supports various activities in the development of intelligent textiles. For example, Interactex facilitates the design of textile circuits and the development of intelligent textile applications for which previously tools designed for other purposes were used. (e.g. layout design software for conventional circuits).

For the 20th time already, the unique international event ISWC took place in cooperation with the ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive & Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp). The conference was hosted by the city of Heidelberg in Baden-Württemberg from 12 to 16 September this year. In addition to experts and researchers, fashion designers and textile developers were able to get together and discuss the latest research results.
