In this paper we define a software architecture for low power wearable computers. The architecture is event driven, and is designed so that application programs have access to sensor data without the need for polling. The software architecture is designed to allow for an underlying hardware architecture that can achieve maximal power efficiency by switching off parts of the hardware that are known not to be required.
