The IEC has released a blog article, The Wearable Future, that explains the trend of smart wearable devices, the potential market, and how they are monitoring the technology and applying appropriate EMC and safety standards.
Several new interesting wearable devices are described that were announced at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last January.
Author of the blog post, Antoinette, reports, “The IEC will continue to monitor this rapidly expanding industry and develop International Standards for the electronics used in wearables, which cover terminology, dependability and safety. This will allow manufacturers of components to be aligned when it comes to the technology. Additionally, IEC Conformity Assessment Systems, based on IEC International Standards, provide independent testing and certification to ensure the safety, reliability and performance of products and the systems within which they work.”
