Vuzix Receives follow-on orders for smart glasses Changi Airport
AREA member Vuzix announced in a press release that the Company has received an ~$1 million commercial M300 Smart Glasses follow-on order from SATS Ltd. (SATS), Asia’s leading provider of Gateway Services and Food Solutions, to outfit SATS’ ramp handling operations at the Changi Airport in Singapore.
SATS, the chief ground-handling and in-flight catering service provider at Singapore Changi Airport, started piloting the Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses to digitize its ramp handling operations in mid-2017 and is now completing phase 2 by introducing and deploying the technology to more than 500 staff at Changi Airport. Using Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses, SATS ramp handling staff will now be able to scan barcodes on baggage and cargo containers to improve the baggage handling process.
Ramp handling staff will also receive real-time loading instructions, which provides the ramp control center with a real-time view of on-ground processes. SATS expects to increase accuracy and improve efficiency of baggage and cargo handling processes for larger wide-body aircraft, by reducing loading times by up to 15 minutes per flight on average.
SGX-listed SATS provides services in 60 airports and 62 cities across Asia and the Middle East. You may like to watch the two related videos:
