Atheer AiR Glasses allow wearers to see critical work information right in their field-of-view and then interact with it using familiar gestures, voice commands, and motion tracking. With the collaboration-centric AiR Suite, a smart glasses wearer can team up with remote experts via video calls and receive guidance through real time image annotations to resolve problems quickly, all while keeping focus on the task at hand. The Atheer AiR platform is harnessing over one million deployment-ready Android apps to enable high-value tasks in industries such as energy, industrial, healthcare, insurance, logistics and anywhere deskless professionals are working.

Challenges Addressed by AR
In today’s business landscape, companies have an estimated 110 million “deskless” professionals in the field who need a more efficient mobile computing solution that will make their hands-on work easier and safer. For deskless professionals such as field engineers, doctors, and technicians who work with their hands in environments that are highly technical or sterile, it is still difficult to fully leverage today’s digital technology without significantly interrupting workflow. In the era of wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) where hardware, software, and services are being developed to blend our physical and digital worlds, Atheer AiR Glasses and AiR Suite provide an immediate solution that allows friction-free access to everything the deskless professional needs to be successful.
