Meet the RealWear HMT-1Z1: a wearable head-mounted platform that allows workers to get more work done. It can be used in highly restricted ATEX Zone 1 C1/D1 zones, in areas where explosive gases are present. It uses 4 microphones and advanced algorithms for noise cancellation and can record 1080p video.
As the company has reported, Shell has selected its HMT-1Z1 and HMT-1 for workers:
Shell is currently using the HMT-1Z1 for remote assistance. For instance, if equipment needs maintenance, a worker can get real-time assistance via a video call, allowing an expert to essentially see through the eyes of the onsite worker and offer over-the-shoulder assistance. In one example, an expert uses Augmented Reality to remotely “draw” on the worker’s screen which is visualized on the head mounted screen.
