Wearables-Fashion With a Purpose: A New Generation of Wearable Devices Uses Signal Processing to Make Life Easier, Healthier, and More Secure

By: 
John Edwards

The old adage "you are what you wear" is taking on an entirely new meaning as smart watches, fitness trackers, and a rapidly expanding array of other wearable devices flood onto the market, enabling users to monitor their exercise progress, retrieve critical health data, and accomplish a wide range of other useful and informative tasks. Researchers are now looking to take wearable technology to even higher levels of usability and performance with devices that allow users to perform a variety of advanced tasks. Teams are now working on projects that will allow users to precisely control machines without any physical interaction, monitor heart activity more accurately than is possible with a currentgeneration smart watch, and even effortlessly authenticate their identity to mobile devices and other external systems.
