The UMBC wearable computing group led by Professor Zary Segall is developing human-aware technology. One recent prototype is BabyWear, a system designed to connect premature babies in neonatal intensive care to their mothers via sound. The system is designed to reduce the stress on both infant and mother and minimize the time in neonatal intensive care. Here is a short video report done as part of CNN’s Pioneers series.
