New Equipment Digest recently featured a young manufacturing worker wearing a RealWear HMT-1 headset on its cover posing the question: “Is this manufacturing’s iPhone moment?” RealWear’s HMT-1 was called the “crowning achievement.” But why? This essential AWE keynote by RealWear’s Co-Founder, President and Chief Product Officer Sanjay Jhawar cuts through the noise and lays out how RealWear has emerged as the unexpected speaker of truth for augmented reality in the harshest environments. Two years later from its inception, RealWear is now the most deployed industrial wearable device globally. In this talk, Jhawar will reveal how customers have crossed the chasm enabling thousands of enterprise companies to break free from “pilot purgatory” to achieve successful global deployment, empowering all workers to increase productivity and safety. Jhawar will go deeper than ever sharing new case studies in oil and gas, utilities, automotive, and manufacturing industries to move the industry forward together.

Description

With the emergence of wearable tech and augmented reality, historically disconnected frontline workers can now be connected into the digital fabric of the business and their activities captured in real time. With the inherently noisy signal that characterizes human activities, Artificial Intelligence (AI) offers the solution to converting this from digital clutter to insights into the largest areas of opportunity in productivity, quality, training, and operations. The outcomes will surprise you.

Description

Recently we’ve been hearing a lot of buzz around developments, prospects and also failures in AR and MR. The real questions that need to be addressed are how these successes are measured, what are the reasons for failure and who is taking into account what the user really wants and needs? So, what’s next? A new chapter in human-machine-interaction. We are moving from a nearly imperceptible interface to an interface you actually won’t be conscious about. We are going beyond interface interaction. The big question with interfaces is: You are offered nearly unlimited data to augment your reality or to mix with your reality, but how do you let the machine know which data you want? When you are offered choices, how do you select one? From the early joy stick, we’ve come to state-of-the-art data selection such as the blinking eye. But what’s the next method of data selection? How will we make choices in the future? We will give you the answers at AWE 2019.

Description

We have seen a shift in Life Sciences development from small molecule to highly sophisticated biologics to the development of complex personalized medicine. With that complexity comes the need for streamlining human-centric processes and assurance of greater reliability, compliance, speed and safety across all unit operations. Paper procedures lack the ability to provide deep insight or process improvement and current EBR systems are rigid, lacking the contextual understanding that makes augmented reality-driven systems so successful within complex environments. As a result, these intelligent and spatial systems are being implemented across life science teams from R&D through manufacturing to improve collaboration, communication and speed. These systems allow organizations to take their existing content, augment it and execute on any device, providing a fully traceable system for accessing and storing critical data.
