Washing Machine Smart Sensor

Have you ever wanted to try bike packing, but was too nervous or improper gear to try it in person? This article tells the story of how a washing machine and Windows Azure helped to make bike riding easier and safer.

What is a washing machine smart sensor?

A washing machine smart sensor is a small device that can be installed in your washer to help you save energy and money. The sensors work with your washer’s electronic control system to detect when it’s time for your clothes to be washed, and then activate the appropriate settings to save energy and water. You’ll also benefit from shorter wash cycles, which will help reduce your environmental impact.

Get your clothes cleaner with no detergent

The Smart Sensor technology in some washing machines uses sensors to detect water and fabric usage, as opposed to traditional detergent measurements. This could help you save money by using less detergent, and help your clothes come out clean without having to use more water or baby powder.

Cleaner and healthier clothing heading your way

According to a study by the National Association of Clothes washers and Dryers (NACWCD), nearly two-thirds of homes (63%) have a clothes washer and dryer. And, apparently, one in ten people (10%) does their laundry without ever using soap or water. Soap isn’t necessary for clothes machines to work effectively. In fact, using soap can actually be bad for your clothing as it can leave residues that can cause fabric damage and make your clothes smell bad. So why do so many people think soap is necessary?

Based on the results of this NACWCD study, it’s clear that there is an opportunity for companies to capitalize on people’s tendency to skimp on laundry care and sell them unnecessary equipment. Some companies are already targeting this market by selling laundry machines with smart sensors that detect whether or not soap is needed. This technology has a few benefits. For one, it’s much more efficient to use less water when doing your laundry; this reduces the amount of energy that needs to be used in the process. It also helps you avoid those dreaded “sodden towels” problem.
