This paper presents a wearable groupware system designed to enhance the communication and cooperation of highly mobile network technicians. It provides technicians in the field with the capabilities for real‐time audio‐conferencing, transmission of video images back to the office, and context‐sensitive access to a shared notebook. An infrared location‐tracking device allows for the automatic retrieval of notebook entries depending on the user’s current location.
