Issue No.04 - October-December (2002 vol.1)
Explores field deployments of wearable pervasive computers, looking to, understand their operational characteristics and gain insight into deployment issues. We study one characteristic group of early adopters among mobile knowledge workers who construct, maintain, and repair technically complex, costly systems such as ships, airliners, and telecommunication networks. While this type of application is far from the only way to use wearable computers, significant and successful field deployments of this kind have emerged.
