Forest inventory and management are important topics to enhance environmental protection initiatives and policies. Thus, sampling processes inside the forest environment are normally manual and limited. These conditions nurture an increasing need for novel solutions to enhance environmental perception, especially in ground-sampling processes. In this work, we present a new solution to augment environmental perception. The proposed appliance is a wearable embedded system based on a helmet and projected to acquire environmental data. It also allows the development of new applications to expand the researcher reality perception.
