Wearable displays for high-tempo work in mission-critical worlds (2018–2021)

Abstract:
This Project aims to investigate how effectively head-worn display technology can support mobile work in complex high-tempo environments, where workers must complete tasks quickly, handle competing demands, and manage interruptions. The Project will draw on field investigations to specify functions and formats for head-worn displays, and will conduct laboratory and simulation studies to test the relative advantages of head-worn displays vs tablet computers. Expected outcomes include knowledge about the effectiveness of head-worn displays for high-tempo work and design principles for deploying head-worn displays. Work environments benefitting from the research should include emergency response, triage, defence, and field service industries.
