Wearables for Industrial Use Cases
We support you to integrate three classes of wearables: Smart glasses, smartwatches, and smart scanners.
Portable computing devices have a long history dating back to the 80s. But it took until 2013 to develop head-mounted displays (HMDs), that meet today’s requirements for productive industrial use. In addition to tablets and smartphones, we also support and integrate three classes of wearables: Smart glasses, smartwatches, smart scanners, or confirmation devices. By integrating the industry’s widest range of wearables, our customers will always find the most suitable device for their jobs. Therefore, they get the industry-standard future-proof solution. Our customers can deploy mixed infrastructure combining different devices or change the implementation and all this through an integrated graphical user interface (GUI).
Smart glasses or head mounted displays are head worn mobile computers including a display, a camera, a microphone, and a speaker. Depending on the device there are often various sensors onboard, too. There are monocular and binocular devices with transparent i.e. see-through and non-see-through/ non-transparent displays.
Smart scanners are available in several form factors, e.g. handheld, ring scanners or attached to a glove. Via Bluetooth they are connected with the smart glasses. They are used to confirm e.g. part numbers and quantities. Some scanners like ring scanners and glove scanners allow the worker to have both hands free e.g. for grabbing heavy items and scan them at the same.
Smartwatches are wrist worn mobile computers displaying information. They can be used to confirm information like quantities and some can also scan barcodes or QR-codes. Smartwatches either come as an alternative to smart glasses or they accompany smart glasses and are connected to them via Bluetooth.
