Conference Paper
Future 5G networks, including vehicular networks, will witness the coexistence of different access technologies like IEEE 802.11p and LTE-V. This diversity will encourage vehicles moving through such technologies to select appropriate networks in order to enhance the system performance. However, Handover decision can be critical if it does not take...

Today, ensuring work safety is considered to be one of the top priorities for various industries. Workplace injuries, illnesses, and deaths often entail substantial production and financial losses, governmental checks, series of dismissals, and loss of reputation. Wearable devices are one of the technologies that flourished with the fourth industri...
Article
Full-text available
Technology is continually undergoing a constituent development caused by the appearance of billions new interconnected “things” and their entrenchment in our daily lives. One of the underlying versatile technologies, namely wearables, is able to capture rich contextual information produced by such devices and use it to deliver a legitimately person...
Conference Paper
With the aim of offering services and products that ensure the safety of people and properties, public safety organizations are responsible for providing the first responders, i.e., police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical service workers, with devices and communication systems that help them exchange time-sensitive and critical informa...

A-WEAR (www.a-wear.eu, A network for dynamic wearable applications with privacy constraints)) is a four year (2019-2022) H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN)/European Joint Doctorate (EJD) 4 bringing together five beneficiaries and 12 partner organizations from Finland, Czech republic, Italy, Romania, and Spain, with the aim of educating, supervising, and training 15 young ambitious and creative researchers to face the future challenges in smart wearables and wireless computing and enhance their career prospects by training them in a multi-sector cross-country environment and teaching them to think globally. The emerging market of wearables is expected to grow exponentially in the near future, driven by the sales increase of smart clothes, watches, and eyeglasses. The future wearables are likely to be heterogeneous, operating on batteries, sun power or human motion, and endowed with smart functions. They will co-operate in a decentralized manner with each other and will be able to reach various interconnected software and applications. The main stream wearable-based architecture has been applied so far in wellbeing industries, such as eHealth or ambient assisted living, which might also reduce the costs for care and guarantee a healthy independent live in the forthcoming older society. As the digitalisation and data-based economy are growing, the exploitation potential of the wearables can easily be expected to increase. Key wearables stakeholder groups in the future are also smart cities, comprising intelligent building industry and infrastructure, energy-efficient smart grid sector, public e-Services, and smart transport. Motivated by the opportunities that next-generation wearable intelligence is expected to provide, the mission of A-WEAR action is to cross-disciplinarily create new architectures, open-source software and frameworks for dynamic wearable ecosystems, with distributed localization and privacy constraints. We aim at building new joint/double European doctoral programmes to train a new generation of young researchers in order to be aware of, to cope with, and to disseminate to a large audience the vulnerabilities and the corresponding solutions of the communication and positioning through wearables. The impact of A-WEAR will be to enhance the future social well-being, to contribute to an easy living, effective and enjoyable work, and to offer new solutions to the challenges of violation of privacy by communication and positioning through wearables and to the need of applying the right of the ownership to one’s data. The work described in this website is conducted within the project A-WEAR. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 (H2020) Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks H2020-MSCA-ITN-2018 call, under the Grant Agreement no 813278.
