Roadmap: Wearable Computers
2005 (English)In: Proceedings of IMAPS Nordic Annaul Conference, 2005, 146-154 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The diversity of portable products on the market has increased due to the evolution of electronic components and batteries. A migration of the portable products into wearable has started by applying non-conventional user interfaces such as voice and gesture recognition, to enable hand-free use. However, major issues remain to be solved in order to make the transition complete. Key technological domains that affect the development of wearable systems are described and discussed. A review of different existing portable/wearable applications and domain of use is presented. User and environmental requirements to be applied on future wearable systems are identified. One of the major user concerns is the robustness of the system, which should withstand the stresses implied by the human body. Therefore, research is made to exploit the advantages of conductive textiles in order to build robust wearable architecture.
