Hands-free working with smart glasses
Unleash the full potential of your remote colleagues by working hands-free. Discover which smart glasses are suitable for this task.
The three most important criteria of smart glasses
In industrial use, it is not only important to use a powerful device that is comfortable to carry for the employee, but also the robustness and longevity plays an important role. Therefore we classified the different types of smart glasses regarding the following three key factors.
It does not make sense to use smart glasses that are too sensitive to dirt, noise, rough handling and other external factors that normally occur in real-world industrial use cases. Except your application takes place in a clear and sterile laboratory or alike.
Processing power, field of view, battery lifetime, camera resolution are only a few of the factors that drive the overall performance of a certain type of smart glasses.
The human factor matters most. Therefore the wearing comfort of smart glasses drives the acceptance of this technology and finally the success of its deployment.
The relatively extended temples of the Epson BT 300 result in limited wearing comfort, especially for people with smaller heads. The device is not suitable for rough environmental conditions, as it is relatively filigree in design. Audio is only available through external headsets.
The integrated touchpad does not always work properly, especially when wearing work gloves. However, there are easy-to-use buttons as an alternative control option.
This device is not available at the market anymore.
