<p>Between 2004 and 2009, the European Commission and 42 partners from 16 countries invested about 24 million Euros to empower mobile workers through the wearIT@work project. In addition to maintenance, production, healthcare, and emergency response, new application domains targeted included cultural heritage, a rural living lab for the prevention of environmental disasters, and wearable computing assistance for visually impaired persons. Industrial demonstrators, evaluations results, and an exploitation strategy were developed and published in a technology repository that indicates the maturity levels of the different components.</p>
