The Architecture of Wearable Technology

Wed 25th May, 6:30 for 7:00pm

Bournemouth University, Talbot Campus (Poole), The Shelley Lecture Theatre, Poole House (Map)

Important Note: The Shelley Lecture Theatre is inside Poole House, not the main lecture theatre area.


The rapid growth of the Wearable Technology market has made it the number one development line for many companies. However, like many new innovations, in the rush to market there is a wide range of standards and problems that will plague the market for years to come. This discussion builds upon research by K Sharp, looking at the technology and products available now and how they are developing, the architecture issues and the direction of travel required for future research.

Refreshments at 6:30pm for 7pm start Note this is earlier than our usual talk start time.

This talk has been organised in conjunction with the The Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors.
