Information Life Cycle Design and Considerations for Wearable Computing

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 181)


The wearable computing has been proposed as a best alternative for these ubiquitous computing interfaces and devices. Digital clothing holds a central element of wearable computing. We explore the processes of information flow applied to digital clothing and ubiquitous environments, and then this paper offers the main related issues about information life cycle of a digital garment system.

The previous wearable computing researches have been taken the deficiency of global view about ubiquitous integration. The paper proposes a more advanced global architecture model and a general service cycle. This paper firstly proposes an architecture design of computing life cycles in digital garment environments. Then it also provides the process cycles for supporting general services in digital garment applications. Finally, the paper presents the important design consideration issues for implementing a digital garment system.
