Visual Contextual Awareness in Wearable Computing

  title={Visual Contextual Awareness in Wearable Computing},
  author={Thad Starner and Bernt Schiele and Alex Pentland},
Small, body-mounted video cameras enable a different style of wearable computing interface. As processing power increases, a wearable computer can spend more time observing its user to provide serendipitous information, manage interruptions and tasks, and predict future needs without being directly commanded by the user. This paper introduces an assistant for playing the real-space game Patrol. This assistant tracks the wearer’s location and current task through computer vision techniques and… CONTINUE READING
