Google Glass may have not made the splash it was hoping for with consumers, but it’s no secret that wearables are on their way to transforming the way we work. After all, wearables for enterprise was one of the major topics at MWC2016!
It should come as no surprise as to why. Wearables have so much potential to transform the workplace because they can provide a real-time, hands free way to function within the industry. For example, imagine how easily workers can utilize smart glasses for hands-free access to daily information or meetings, or employees can use data collected on smartwatches to let their bosses know about important stats involving their work. Warehouse managers can even use this real-time performance data to make better decisions involving supply-chain management operations and distribution.
Companies like FedEx and UPS have already started using smart glasses, gloves, and rings to scan packages. These radio-frequency enabled devices can quickly analyze data regarding your packages, such as pickup, sorting, and delivery, enabling the worker to move more efficiently.
Wearables are becoming more widely adopted in global defense, and this trend is only gaining momentum. That’s one of the factors that led army manufacturing companies such as Elbit to develop smart head-mounted display systems for military and commercial aviation. One of these such devices, Elbit’s Skylens, is an innovative head-mounted display that offers augmented reality vision to pilots, without having to rely on instrumentation for low-visibility or harsh weather conditions.
Wearables will be playing a major role in the safety of industries with high-risk factors, including oil and gas. These devices can collect and deliver data from the field, such as analyzing risk factors of certain sites and improve communication between workers and staff. For example, wearables can provide a worker on an oil rig key data regarding maps, step-by-step instructions on how to fix problems, and deliver remote support. And all of this can be done hands-free!
