On inner surface of your glasses you see the map of the building, your current location and directions.

Tourist. You rented GSM enabled device in the tourist agency. On the maps you have list of places to visit, restaurants, shopping malls.

Device description and technologys used

In all use cases described above I need only unidirectional link with relatively small bandwidth and short reach. It appears that ZigBee technology answers this problem good enough. Low power consumption is another argument why i choose ZigBee.
Device contains two distinct parts.
One is a small computer with one or more different wireless and wired interfaces, optional hard disk, optional GSM, optional TV receiver. Let's call it Central Unit or CU. CU contains also charger for the second part of the device - screen.
The second part of the device or Receiver (R) is a screen attached to the glasses or hat. Receiver contains it's own battery or can be connected to the CU.
Data can be streamed from CU to R using wireless or wired interface.

The project

The objectives of the project
  • define XML based standart for describing three dimensional maps and develop software processing these maps
  • build a prototype of simple CU based on freely available today parts
  • build receiver based on low definition screen (probably B&W LCD)
