Abstract: The objective of this paper is to investigate the predictability of clothing comfort from psychological sensory perceptions by using feed-forward backpropagation network in the system of Artificial Neural Network (ANN). In order to achieve the objective, a series of wear trials were conducted, in which eleven sensory perceptions (clammy, clingy, damp, sticky, heavy, prickly, scratchy, fitness, breath, thermal and comfort) were rated by twenty-two professional athletes in a controlled laboratory. They were asked to wear 4 different garments in each trial and rate the above sensory perceptions during their 90 minutes exercising period. The scores then were inputted into five different feed-forward backpropagation neural networks models, which consist of six different number of hidden and output transfer neurones. Results showed that good correlation was found between predicted and actual comfort ratings with significance at p<0.001 level with all five models, indicating the overall comfort performance was predictable by using neural networks, particularly, in the models with log sigmoid hidden neurones and pure linear output neurone. Models with a single log sigmoid hidden-layer with 15 neurones or 3 hidden layers, each with 10 log sigmoid hidden neurones are able to produce better predictions than the other models for this particular data set in the study.
