Abstract For workers in extreme environments, such as firefighters, thermal protective clothing is essential to protect them from exposures to high heat and life threatening risks. This study will investigate the design of a new smart protective clothing system, which incorporates sensors in the undergarment to measure physiological data, such as skin temperature, heat flux and heat rate to assess the thermal status of the worker. The aim of this paper is to outline the design of the smart wearable undergarment and the evaluation process for testing the smart undergarment in a controlled environment.
