Wearable Computing Research Group Research Lab

The University of Oregon is actively involved in the field of Wearable Computing. It is funded under a grant by NSF to pursue several concepts related to the wearable field.

Their research goal is to gain an understanding of the technical and user-interface issues of wearable computing. More concretely, the research can be categorized into the following broad areas:

  1. Developing wearable applications for fielding.
  2. Evaluating wearable applications under development in a number of areas.
  3. Designing a common software "backplane" that can rapidly be reconfigured to perform a variety of tasks.
  4. Tackling the theoretical problem of the limitations of a wearable system.
