How to Use Wearable Technologies to Accelerate Productivity and Generate ROI for Your Customers

Concerns over worker safety, and broader integration of Internet of Things (IoT) and network connectivity have propelled the use of wearable devices in the industrial sector. Wearables supported by connected worker programs can help increase productivity, efficiency, and safety.

For the past several years, RealWear has outfitted frontline workers with a wearable assisted reality solution that, for the first time, allowed them to use voice commands to remotely collaborate with others, navigate through complex workflows, all while keeping their hands and field of vision free. Assisted reality refers to a maturing technology that displays a non-immersive display of relevant content via a heads-up display. The user controls it with simple voice commands even in high noise, bright or darkened environments while maintaining full situational awareness.

It should come as no surprise that industrial companies are investing significantly in digital transformation, including wearable technologies, to enable uninterrupted communication and collaboration in the present and foreseeable future. Disruptions caused by the pandemic have further accelerated the ongoing adoption of IoT, ML and cloud technologies to ensure business continuity and that trend is expected to continue.
