wearIT@work - Empowering the mobile worker by wearable computing

With more than 30 partners the European research project wearIT@work is currently the biggest organized research effort in the area of wearable computing. Wearable computing describes the application of hard- and software which is worn like or integrated in clothing and not carried like a cell phone or PDA.

wearIT@work focuses on the application and usability of such solutions in the working environment. Innovative solutions in hard- and software are tested and evaluated by the four industrial and communal partners SKODA, EADS, gespaG, and the firefighter brigade of Paris in four typical scenarios: assembly, maintenance, medical care and emergency services. Optimal performance in the work process with a high gain in efficiency is assured by a strictly user-centered design process.

C-LAB is involved in the area of reusable software components and frameworks for the development of wearable applications. These components will provide a standardized basis for domain specific solutions. Architectures are carefully selected under the conditions imposed by wearable devices and will emerge as a framework with existing and newly conceived service components.
