The objective of the project is to develop novel models and architectures for next-generation community-oriented wearable computing systems,
define a rigorous engineering methodology, with associated formal verification and simulation tools, to drive the development lifecycle of
CO-WCS, and create a pilot in a real instrumented environment to support activities of surgical teams in operating rooms
COMMON-WEARS moves the research front by developing models, architectures, and engineering tools for the next generation of wearable computing
systems, namely, those featuring multi-user collectives of smart wearables and body sensor networks (BSN), with applications, e.g., in domestic,
urban, manufacturing, emergency, and working environments. This will be achieved by combining recent research conducted by the proposers in aggregate
computing, collective opportunistic IoT, machine learning, and WCS/BSN architectures. We will demonstrate results on challenging use cases in the areas
of healthcare, emergency response and pandemic management that are strongly impacted by smart wearables.
The combination of new scientific results beyond the state of the art and real-life and simulation-based demonstrators will increase impact of results
both in research and industry. The project outcomes have the potential of opening up a new era of WCS as an enabler for smart services based on CO-WCS.
COMMON-WEARS has several potential impacts for value creation: Its research will make major theoretical, methodological and experimental contributions
towards a better understanding of how to support communities with smart wearables; The overall project contribution is in line with the Horizon Europe
clusters and towards supporting UN Sustainable Development Goals; The dissemination activities target the scientific community and key industry and public
sector stakeholders, as well as the general public, to maximize impact of results.
