This paper describes a preliminary investigation of how the capabilities of wearable computers may be used to provide task guidance in mobile environments. Specifically, this study examined how the capabilities of wearable computers may be used to aid a user in an inspection task, using as a case study the procedural task of preflight inspection of a(More)
Procedures can greatly benefit workers at tasks such as inspection, maintenance, and assembly. Procedures may serve as a guideline for expert workers or they may provide a list of directives to be followed exactly; either way, procedures serve to structure a task, to aid worker memory, and to guarantee consistency and safety. Light, inexpensive electronics(More)
We believe that wearable computers combined with a performance support system could be a useful resource for mobile workers. Literature provides little guidance as to whether this is a feasible solution for aiding mobile workers in the performance of their tasks. In order to evaluate the feasibility of this concept an initial study was conducted. This(More)
Undiagnosed mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) often leads to poor patient management and significant morbidity. The lack of an efficient screening tool is especially apparent in the athletic setting, where repetitive injuries can lead to prolonged disability. We have developed the Display Enhanced Testing for Concussions and mTBI system (DETECT), in order(More)
