Global workforces are often in a state of continual change and advancement, but this has never been truer than in the past few years. While a global pandemic played a role, it was not the sole source of accelerated change. Many trends that have been evolving for years were simply exacerbated, with a perfect storm of needs looking for solutions. Within this, the story of the frontline worker has been top of mind for many—not only nurses and teachers but also factory and field service workers.
Wearable, Augmented Reality (AR) Head-Mounted Displays (HMDs) presented an excellent opportunity to outfit workers with connected devices and keep those workers and their workflows organized. Today, these devices continue to deliver immense value as companies
look to hybrid work environments, alongside increasing digitization and Industry 4.0 efforts. RealWear Navigator 500 is RealWear’s latest Assisted Reality HMD, serving as an update to the successful HMT-1 head-worn device.
