Titel / Title: A SmartWardrobe - Augmenting laundry planning
Abstrakt Abstract:

Trends in technologies have mostly focused on the work environment,
entertainment and communication technologies. Some developments have
been made for the home such as microwave ovens, washing machines,
HDTV, etc but most tasks are still manually executed. Washing machines are
used in laundry but there hasn’t been a significant saving in time compared
to manual laundering. The effects of misuse of the machine can be very
destructive to clothes. This calls for proper sorting of clothes and adjustment
of washing settings as appropriate. However, sorting has become a time
consuming activity that requires a lot of attention on the part of the
individual. Due to fatigue, individuals may in turn not pay much attention to
washing instructions.

In this thesis, we put together technologies into a system that would aid the
user in planning and executing a laundry through identification of dirty
clothes and sorting them in groups that can go into separate washes.
