RealWear collaborates with HPE to create a head-mounted tablet for connected industrial workers

RealWear has partnered with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to incorporate the HPE MyRoom Visual Remote Guidance (VRG) solution into the RealWear HMT-1. This is claimed to be the first voice-driven, completely hands-free, head-mounted tablet for connected industrial workers.

The partnership enables video collaboration between workers and remote experts and specialists regardless of location to solve complex problems and increase safety, efficiency and productivity.

HPE MyRoom VRG is an encrypted, enterprise-grade platform that works with smart glass wearable technology and allows users to see through remote eyes and modernise their collaboration experience. It connects devices securely through the cloud enabling real-time voice, video with telestration, and content sharing. Paired with RealWear’s rugged design and connectivity capabilities, the partnership is aiming to set a new standard in remote collaboration for heavy industry.

“Incorporating VRG into the HMT-1 and connecting workers and mentors in challenging environments speaks to the very essence of our solutions,” said Garry Orsolini, director of Technology–Education Services, HPE Pointnext. “The industry demanded a better way to quickly connect and collaborate to solve issues remotely. Together, HPE and RealWear are fulfilling that need.”

The RealWear HMT-1 is designed for skilled technicians and engineers in field service, equipment inspection, maintenance, and complex manufacturing assembly. Its hands-free interface allows voice control of existing Android tablet and smartphone apps.

Intended for remote video collaboration, technical documentation, industrial IoT data visualisation, assembly and maintenance instructions, and streamlined workflow and inspections, the HMT-1 ushers in a new era of productivity for connected industrial workers.
