In this paper, current applications of wearable computers are reviewed and categorized according to dimensions of “time” and “reference.” The time dimension is based on whether the system uses information that is stored, information that is current, or information that can help in predicting future events. The reference dimension is concerned with the type of application, event, task, environment, person, or artifact. Each of these categories can be described in terms of its temporal features… Expand

Requirements Elicitation and Utilization Scenarios for In-car Use of Wearable Devices
TLDR
Assessing user requirements for successful application of wearable devices in connection with the vehicle shows that key requirements for users are contextual intelligence, making use of sensory input and connectivity, anticipation of user needs, unobtrusiveness, and compatibility with other devices and operating systems.

Preliminary Investigations into the Use of Wearable Computers
TLDR
Investigation of human factors which could have a bearing on the use of wearable computers shows performance time of participants using a wearable computer to be superior to those using paper-based manual and recording, but there is a trend for more errors to be made when using the wearable computer.
