Cost-effective wearable sensor to detect EMF
In this paper we present the design of a cost-effective wearable sensor to detect and indicate the strength and other characteristics of the electric field emanating from a laptop display. Our Electromagnetic Field Detector Bracelet can provide an immediate awareness of electric fields radiated from an object used frequently. Our technology thus supports awareness of ambient background emanation beyond human perception. We discuss how detection of such radiation might help to "fingerprint" devices and aid in applications that require determination of indoor location. Keywords Wearable sensor, ambient signals, capacitive sensor, EMF. ACM Classification Keywords H5.m. Information interfaces and presentation (e.g., HCI): Miscellaneous.
