Abstract or Description

Abstract: "This paper describes the concurrent design of a wearable computer, called the Navigator. The design effort for the Navigator involved nineteen designers, representing a variety of engineering disciplines. The evolution of the design is described, with particular emphasis placed upon the role of the thermal design group in the overall design process. Furthermore, the particular challenges associated with the concurrent thermal management of wearable computer systems are outlined."
