Dematic distributes smart glasses
Wednesday, 11 October, 2017
Automated technology supplier Dematic has announced it will distribute Vuzix Smart Glasses in Australia and New Zealand.
The Vuzix Smart Glasses allow hands-free mobile computing that can be used within the warehouse for inventory management tasks such as picking orders, inventory replenishment and inventory cycle counting. The Android-based device combines the features of a barcode scanner, a voice picking system and a vision picking system.
The glasses feature an nHD monocular display, an Intel processor, large internal storage and wireless connectivity capabilities. They also have a 10 MP, 1080p camera that records, stores and plays back still pictures and video, designed for maintenance and remote support functions in industrial settings.
Brian Lang, Dematic’s director of real time logistics, said the glasses will help supply chain customers achieve “operational excellence”.
“Including the Vuzix Smart Glasses in the Dematic portfolio of solutions creates more choices for customers and can optimise their order fulfilment,” Lang said.
Flexibility and versatility are also benefits of the smart glasses, which are resistant to water, dust and dirt, allowing the user to use the glasses in almost any working environment. They also include multiple mounting options and enhanced battery packs, with a battery life of around 8 h, for long or high-intensity users.
Vuzix President and CEO Paul Travers said: “Vuzix is excited to partner with market-leading integrator Dematic to deliver our innovative M300 Smart Glasses to supply chain operators across Australia and New Zealand.
“The smart glasses are proven to deliver productivity and accuracy gains, while reducing training time in supply chain operations. Dematic is the perfect partner to integrate this industry-winning technology into their client’s complex and demanding logistic operations.”
