The use of wireless communications in wearable computing empowers mobile users to communicate among each other and to access resources in the vicinity (smart environment) or at remote locations via the internet or intranet (databases, online video, remote personnel support, etc.). Communication allows the mobile user to perform their tasks more effectively and efficiently. This paper describes research performed and planned in wearIT@work to improve and adapt existing communication protocols to the mobile worker and wearable computing.
