A hands free, wearable technology that allows industrial workers to more safely, reliably and efficiently accomplish their tasks in the plant or the field has been launched by Honeywell. Honeywell Connected Plant Skills Insight Intelligent Wearables uses 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. It also connects field workers with remote experts in real time.
“This new Honeywell Connected Plant technology offers industrial workers the information they need, when they need it, wherever they are,” said Youssef Mestari, program director, Honeywell Connected Plant. “That means workers carry with them decades of relevant expertise that is accessible at any time by simple voice activation. This makes this solution a particular good fit for industrial workers who have an affinity for technology and who need more physical freedom to efficiently accomplish their work.”
The new technology uses the latest in hands free mobile computing, augmented reality, IIOT and mobility software. It combines the RealWear HMT-1Z1™ hands free wearable computer with Honeywell’s Movilizer platform, an industry leading, cloud-based workflow solution, to support field service operations, specifically in hazardous locations. With the new solution, field workers can assimilate valuable skills and knowledge while working.
