Our team developed a wearable computer and a special application for quality assurance inspectors in a food processing plant. The computer includes a hard drive, head-mounted display, microphone, earphone, and batteries. The software includes applications for quality assurance data collection, voice recognition, wireless network, auditory feedback, and Windows 95. The application allows inspectors to select a form, complete the form, and send the data to the plant manager's computer. The system allows mobile workers to use their voices, rather than their hands, to enter data from anywhere in the plant.
