Head worn displays
An aeromedical rescue helicopter Augusta Westland AW 139

This ARC-funded project is studying selected fast-paced work settings in various industries and healthcare environments in order to identify how head-worn displays can support workers' information and communication needs. We are surveying industry and healthcare use cases, and conducting fieldwork in high-tempo work environments, including aeromedical rescue teams (in cooperation with Retrieval Services Queensland).

The project will develop HWD applications for evaluation with flight physicians, paramedics and rescue crew, that will be formally tested in training simulation studies.
