The RealWear Head-Mounted Tablet (HMT) is designed for skilled technicians and engineers in field service, equipment inspection, maintenance and complex manufacturing assembly. Head-mounted wearable is designed to free the hands of technicians and engineers in industrial environments.
While wearing the HMT-1, workers can use voice commands to browse and search technical documentation or instructions, which are stored on the wearable’s microSD card and can be synced from the cloud using Wi-Fi.
The design of wearable includes noise cancellation and multiple microphones, which is designed to ensure that field workers can be heard even in loud environments while using the wearable’s remote collaboration functionality. Andy Lowery, RealWear CEO and Founder said, “When a malfunction occurs in an airport distant from the maintainers that have the knowledge to repair it, they are able to dial in to a local maintenance engineer with software like Librestream’s Onsite remote collaboration to diagnose and fix the problem.”
Software is installed on the HMT-1 via Wi-Fi or a USB cable connected to a desktop computer, much of it resembles a tablet. Lowery says just one use of the HMT-1 will return savings to an airline worth ten times what they would pay for the device. The company has an adaptive pricing model and available leasing programs.
