Wearable Computing Technology
The wearIT@work project is focused on the development of a set of new solutions to support the workers of the future. These solutions are based on wearable computing technology and their effectiveness and applicability will be tested on four different pilot studies in the fields of Healthcare, Emergency Rescue, Aircraft Maintenance and Production Management and Training.
Despite its massive growth, the market for wearable technologies is still a niche market compared to the industrial use of desktop computers. Drivers of a stronger growth will be more standardized hardware and software platforms enabling the new work paradigms. wearIT@work intends to be, with its partners, a key driver for this market.
