Smart eyeglasses integrate sensors can serve for multiple purposes including health monitoring. Generally, the sensors need to be integrated at specific parts of the eyeglasses to function effectively. Moreover, optimising sensor locations maximises sensor data quality. However, optimal sensor locations can vary according to different wearers’ heads. In practise, sensor locations are usually optimised manually using CAD software. The manual process discourages the fast integration.


To develop algorithms/methods to automatically optimise locations and orientation of sensors on personalised eyeglasses frames.
