About the book
New Frontiers in Wearable Technologies is a compilation of the latest advancements in wearable technologies from
a multi-pronged approach. The pervasive computing paradigm is at a crossroads where never before computing
has been so much embedded within the user. Recent developments in sensor technologies, wireless protocols
integration, and AI have empowered the citizen towards a smart citizen with a high degree of autonomy and varying
computing capabilities from one context to another.
Moreover, software engineering has evolved too to allow lightweight programming and full-stack coding of those sensors. The network itself is today viewed as a programming platform, thus wearable devices are no more stand-alone and do not operate in a vacuum. This book aims at attracting authors from academia, the industry, research institutions, public and private agencies to provide the findings of their recent achievements in the field, but also visionaries who foresee the future of wearable technologies in the coming decades.
