RealWear and UROS plan to deploy 10,000 HMT-1 devices powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile Platform to digitally connect the Industrial Workforce in Kazakhstan
Qualcomm Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, RealWear and UROS, together announced a digitization project to digitally connect the industrial workforce in Kazakhstan.
UROS plans to provide RealWear HMT-1 and HMT-1Z1 voice-controlled, head-mounted devices powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile Platform to 10,000 front line industrial workers. These connected workers can speak with remote experts or connect to 5G and IoT sensor data provided by UROS and its partners.
RealWear devices are fully rugged, designed for use in extreme conditions to provide frontline workers a voice-controlled digital dashboard that appears as though it were a seven-inch tablet in front of a worker’s eye.
“Qualcomm Technologies has always been committed to transforming industries and enriching lives and we are thrilled to have our technology support the next generation of mobile computing for industrial frontline workers through the efforts of RealWear and UROS,” said Hugo Swart, Head of XR, Qualcomm Technologies.
Jerry Raatikainen, CEO, UROS Group said, “By combining a shared vision for digital transformation and the strengths of UROS and RealWear, we will deliver great customer experiences for businesses around the world operating in the manufacturing, energy and automotive industries, to name a few. The similarities in our companies’ ethos make the partnership with RealWear a strong fit, and from a technological perspective our existing relationship with Qualcomm Technologies will contribute further momentum.”
Andy Lowery, Cofounder and CEO of RealWear said, “Our collective efforts aim to enhance the quality of life and safety of Kazakhstan’s citizens through hands-free, XR computing. With RealWear’s long-term commitment towards revolutionizing industrial connectivity, we plan to incorporate the Snapdragon XR roadmap in our next generation of advanced products for the front-line workforce.”
