Title Making regular eyeglasses smart
Abstract We overview the vast application potential of multi-purpose smart eyeglasses that integrate in the form factor of traditional spectacles and provide frequently needed sensing and interaction. In combination with software apps running on smart eyeglasses, we obtain universal assistance systems that remain unobtrusive and thus can support wearers throughout their daily life. We describe a blueprint of the embedded architecture of smart eyeglasses and identify various software app clusters. In three case studies, we discuss findings from using smart eyeglasses prototypes to recognise cognitive workload, quantify reading habits, and monitor light exposure to estimate circadian phase.
