This paper discusses two of the most important design considerations for a wearable device with visual sensing: what kind of sensor to use and where to place it.While nature and computer vision have explored a wide range of imaging techniques, wearables have mostly viewed the world through conventional narrow-view passive cameras designed for nonwearable applications, which are attached to the wearer’s head. The rationale presented here for sensor selection and the novel methodology developed for objectively studying sensor placement have informed the development of a number of visual wearables.
