Project Description

Co-creating the Future of Workwear

Elten is a well known and well respected German shoe manufacturer in the field of work wear and industrial usage. We have been developing several prototypes of smart shoes and are still working together on creating the future of workwear. 

The shoe which is shown here comes with the function of setting an alarm when a potentially dangerous zone is entered by the worker. We collaborated with SIEMENS on the RFID antenna system. The shoe comes in conjunction with a wireless charging shelf. We developed flexible PCBs (electronics) that will deform with the shoe and are not complicated in assembly.
