Zebra’s Enterprise AR Glasses Add XMReality Remote Guidance Software
At the end of last month, VentureBeat reported that Augmented Reality headset developer, Zebra, has announced that it will be integrating AREA member XMReality’s Remote Guidance software with its smart glasses. The article highlights the importance of AR headsets for the enterprise, as they enable frontline workers to access data on site.
XMReality’s software is used on smartphones, and allows remote technicians to share a view with customers. It also provides overlays and drawings over the real-time view, giving visual instructions on identifying and repairing problems. As well as preventing the need for on-site visits, the Zebra headset also allows for a hands-free experience.
The partnership between Zebra and XMReality demonstrates the increasing connectivity between data hubs and frontline workers via wearable AR technology. Remote employees can access both warehoused data and human expertise with the technology. XMReality’s camera system adapts any Windows computer into a guidance station for remote workers. Its software also supports industrial AR glasses from other AREA members Vuzix and RealWear.
The HD4000 Enterprise HMD (head-mounted display) is also supported by XMReality’s remote guidance software. Weighing only 1.06oz, the HMD is equipped with a 9-axis head tracking sensor for user tracking, uses a 5-megapixel camera to capture field imagery, and has a colour screen to display graphics, video content, and text. The HMD is designed for applications in the following sectors:
- Warehouse management
- Field mobility
