Global technology company, Epson debuted the Moverio Assist, a new augmented reality headset that lets field technicians and remote experts collaborate in real-time to accelerate repairs and complete tasks.
In conjunction with their app, Moverio Assist uses smart glasses with Si-OLED display technology that allows field technicians to view instructions, photos, PDFS, and videos, while communicating with remote company experts in real-time — and while hands-free. The Moverio BT-300 and BT-350 ANSI smart glasses have built-in cameras to show what field technicians are viewing so experts can help them complete the tasks. In addition, the Moverio BT-350 ANSI model includes indoor and outdoor safety shields that meet ANSI Z87.1 safety certification requirements.
Enotech, Inc., an environmental product, systems and services company, adopted Moverio for its troubleshooting, site walk-throughs and service calls, which yielded good results.
“Previously, phone conversations with field teams would sometimes stretch into hours — this has practically been eliminated by using Moverio Assist,” Jason Lalli, vice president of Encotech, Inc. said in a press release. “We have tried handheld screens in the past but having two hands available for work is game-changing for us. Jobs and support that might have taken entire days can be done in hours or minutes, and we can focus on revenue generation while keeping our customers happy.”
The Moverio Assist is available with monthly subscription plans based on minutes starting at $40 a month per pair of smart glasses.
