Guide2Wear is assessing wearable devices like smart watches or smart glasses and their potential for use in tomorrow’s mobility services. The main focus lies on the implementation of a navigation system for public transport that will demonstrate the use of mobile services for one user group through the example of one wearable device selected within the project. The SMART-WAY technology, which has been developed at the Fraunhofer IVI within an EU-funded project, forms the project’s starting point.
The aims of Guide2Wear are:
The Fraunhofer IVI coordinates the consortium, which consists of seven European partners.
In addition, the Fraunhofer team is responsible for the development of the prototype and the subsequent testing and demonstration phase. This also includes the integration of the SMART-WAY navigation technology in the selected wearable device, as well as the adaptation of the navigation technology to the requirements of a wearable device and to specific user requirements, which will be identified in the course of the project. Furthermore, testing and demonstration scenarios for the developed prototype will be constructed.
