Health care systems were greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone was feeling insecure, whether infected. Among the symptoms identified by the virus, body-temperature was the most prominent sign. This research proposes accurate body temperature monitoring without requiring close contact or affecting one’s normal business operations. This study presents a smart shirt design based on the Internet of Things applications. The proposed shirt will allow the wearer to monitor their body temperature. This is achieved using an Arduino microcontroller with a temperature sensor, a display screen, and a battery as a power source. In this system, the temperature sensor measures the body temperature and transmits the information to the microcontroller, which is displayed on the screen. This study identifies the most appropriate location for placing the smart components in shirt, considering the comfort and style of the wearer.
