The wearIT@work project, financed by the European Union, aims at facilitating real-life industrial deployment of wearable technology. With 42 partners, a project funding of 23.7 million, this consortium is the largest civilian wearable-computing effort worldwide. The project is organized around four pilot applications—aircraft maintenance, car production, healthcare, and emergency response—that drive the work in a bottom-up, user-centered approach.
