Smart Glasses Offer a Breakthrough to the Food Processing Industry
Hands-free supply improvements
Food safety’s become even more important since March 2020. Supply chains have been affected, as governments place strict restrictions on food handlers in the name of public health.
The engineers responsible for monitoring food service equipment have been presented with a challenge. In-person inspections of worksites can no longer be relied upon to ensure health standards are met and machines operated efficiently.
Vuzix Smart Glasses have filled this gap. Today, there’s no need for specialists to leave the house to do their jobs. Instead, individuals who are already on-site can simply stream their first-person view to off-site experts.
Inspectors can even take screenshots of their partner’s view, among several other intuitive functions.
Users are communicating using TOMRA Visual Assist. The Vuzix app allows remote experts to provide remote support to on-site field service engineers.
The technology represents the next best thing to being there in person.
A remote support superstar
This breakthrough offers countless benefits to everyone from processors themselves to end consumers:
Social distancing protocols can be followed, as Smart Glasses mean specialists can walk on-site personnel through even the most complex procedures from anywhere. No one is exposed and less cluttered sites reduce workplace injuries.
Engineers can use their partner’s view to inspect equipment. The hands-free tech makes it easy to walk untrained personnel through equipment repairs. Specialists can even take screenshots of their partner’s view and highlight problem areas using the animate feature.
Eyes on the prize
Inspectors no longer need to look down at a phone or tablet to monitor notes. Info is available in the Smart Glasses display, accessible through voice commands.
With no commute, all parties benefit from a sharp decrease in travel expenses.
Since it’s easy for business owners to request the help of specialists, food processing equipment runs more efficiently. In addition, zero travel means more inspections can be performed than ever before.
Vuzix Smart Glasses greatly improve communication across the entire food processing industry.
