Headquartered in Henrietta, NY, Six15 Technologies develops enterprise-grade smart glasses solutions uniquely designed on a modular technology platform, DARWIN, to support the development of application-specific AR solutions.
Background and Achievements
Formed in 2012 through the acquisition of intellectual property and assets from Vuzix Corporation, Six15 Technologies develops head mounted displays and wearable computing for the most demanding enterprise environments.
With a focus on optical systems, waveguides, system design, UI and human factors, Six15 Technologies is working with Fortune 500 companies to set a new standard for optimized smart glasses solutions across a broad spectrum of industries.
Working closely with the Department of Defense and other enterprise partners, the company has, since formation, delivered nearly 10,000 wearable displays and over 200,000 optical modules that were integrated into original equipment manufacturers systems.
Challenges to Be Addressed
The company views the existing challenges for smart glasses today to be the following:
- Device challenges: one-size-fits-all hardware solutions create unforeseen complexities, unrealistic expectations and hidden cost for enterprise customers.
- Solution integration challenges: existing off-the-shelf hardware solutions are not easily integrated into existing company infrastructure to help scale the technology.
- Product durability and lifecycle commitment.
- IT support and integration.
- Security standards.
Why AR Is Strategic
Six15 Technologies strongly believes in the value of Augmented Reality and indeed it’s the foundation of their platform and technology. They believe that AR and connected devices have the potential to change the way organizations and workers conduct business globally.
