Intelligent Wearables Outfit Industrial Personnel

Honeywell’s handsfree, wearable Connected Plant technology allows industrial workers to accomplish tasks in the plant or field safely, reliably and efficiently. The company’s Skills Insight Intelligent Wearables feature a head-mounted visual display that responds to voice and brings live data, documents, work procedures, as well as health and safety information into view.

 

The wearable technology also connects field workers with remote experts in real time and allows them to assimilate valuable skills and knowledge while working. It employs the latest in handsfree mobile computing, augmented reality, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and mobility software and combines the RealWear HMT-1Z1 handsfree wearable computer with Honeywell’s Movilizer platform, an industry leading, cloud-based workflow solution, to support field service operations, specifically in hazardous locations.
