Description

Wearable computing facilitates a new form of human-computer interaction comprising a small body-worn computer (e.g. user-programmable device) that is always on and always ready and accessible to the mobile worker - the worker of the future. Wearable technologies can change your organization's way of working by improving worker productivity and flexibility, increasing the number of tasks performed simultaneously and by needing less time to perform each task. WearIT@work was set up by the European Commission as an Integrated Project to investigate wearable computing as a technology dealing with computer systems integrated into clothing. The effectiveness and applicability of the wearable solutions developed during the lifetime of the project have been tested in four pilot applications - aircraft maintenance, car production, health care and emergency response - that drive the work in a bottom-up, user-centered approach. Core industrial players relevant to the deployment of wearable systems in the chosen domains were included. In this book, you will read about the wearIT@work project, discover the benefits that wearables can provide your business and discover how you can participate in the adoption process of wearIT@work technologies. The wearIT@work project has 42 partners with a project volume of about Euro 23.7 million and a funding of about Euro 14.6 million. It is the largest project worldwide in wearable computing.show more
