ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), (“Vuzix” or, the “Company”), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses, Augmented Reality (AR) technologies and products for the consumer and enterprise markets, is pleased to announce that the Vuzix M300 now supports ‘TechSight’, an augmented reality solution for distribution center workers developed by Honeywell’s Intelligrated’s for its Lifecycle Support Services customers.
One of the most exciting market verticals today for Vuzix customer deployments is field service. Field service, typically involves a see-what-I-see application that can deliver expert knowledge from the office remotely to a technician in the field. When see-what-I-see applications are delivered through to a hands-free pair of smart glasses, technicians in the field are almost instantly more productive because they can work with both hands and simultaneously have access to the information and expertise they need to solve their problem efficiently.
In this type of application, a single use of smart glasses in the field can save tens of thousands of dollars for our customers, especially if key equipment failures can be remedied faster or avoided all together; and we have seen some workers view themselves as super-charged or enhanced within their industry as these workers can now leverage this access to expert knowledge that was previously unavailable to them from the worksite. See-what-I- see applications can deliver knowledge where and when you need it and is proving to be a powerful tool for technicians and remote workers.
TechSight from Honeywell Intelligrated is based on augmented reality, smart glasses technology that operates on the Web Real-time Communication (WebRTC) protocol to provide secure peer-to-peer video and audio connectivity. Utilizing the Vuzix M300 smart glasses, TechSight requires only a Wi-Fi connection to enable distribution center service technicians to stream live video and audio experts who are watching remotely on a computer.
“We are delighted that Honeywell Intelligrated’s service offering is now supported by the Vuzix M300 for connected field workers and is the latest example of a see-what-I-see application that can deliver knowledge where and when you need it,” said Paul Travers, Vuzix President and Chief Executive Officer.
