You’ve landed on an old blog post. Would you like to read our newer Enterprise AR/VR – proving the business case –blog instead?

 

Recently at a virtual reality industry event I had the pleasure to invite people to test an augmented reality helmet. “Wow” is the word to best describe the feelings at our stand during the event. Wow, coming from the people testing the helmet. And wow, coming from me and my colleague demoing the helmet for six hours without a proper break in order to give as many visitors as possible from the constant queue outside our stand an opportunity to testdrive the device.

What is this magical helmet and why does it create such a fuss even at an industry event packed with cool VR, AR, and MR demos? DAQRI SMART HELMET is a mixed reality hardware integrated with safety helmet and visor. The device differentiates itself from other HMDs (head mounted device) with the actual hard helmet that houses the mixed reality device. So it is a real helmet for people with a real need to protect their head in their duties. Duties, where safety is always an issue and where you work with your hands. So you wear a helmet and want to keep your hands free. Which is why DAQRI offers the protection and has a user interface that is operated with head movements or voice commands; to keep your hands free for the duties on site.

DAQRI SMART HELMET brings mixed reality to any harsh working environment with rugged design and large potential in hardware and software solutions. The fact that the device is purpose-built for industrial environment shows in many ways. The device itself as well as the software are designed from ground up to perform in demanding environments like construction sites, factory floors etc. It also shows in the numerous extra features that the helmet has. DAQRI has mixed reality technology cameras for spatial awareness and holographic displays. Thermal vision, in turn, allows the user to capture infrared pictures and video. In an environment where heat is potential danger – to workers as well as to equipment – it certainly is an important feature.

The remote expert –application in DAQRI allows new kind of communication between the worker on site and a remotely located colleague. Real time video communication through WiFi with helmet user and remotely located colleague allow information to be sent directly to helmet’s view. This way the worker on site with the helmet can get precise assistance to the task at hand.

Stereoscape is the official partner of DAQRI in Finland. There is a lot of new things expected from DAQRI in 2017. So stay tuned to hear the latest, come and meet us at Arrow IoT Summit in Vantaa on 18.5. or just book a visit to our showroom to testdrive DAQRI yourself.
