Context-Aware Wearables

Context-Aware Wearables


Smart wearable devices are becoming increasingly integrated into our lives. These devices have a lot of potentials, from their unique positions on a person’s body. In this project, we aim to integrate wearables with context-awareness to support learning. We intend to make wearables context-aware enough to support relevant learning in everyday life.


  • Investigate object detection using a wearable camera and analyze in terms of use-case scenarios and effectiveness
  • Design a wearable device application to integrate context-awareness with wearables
