Industrial Wearables

Wearable products comprise smart devices equipped with microchips, sensors, and wireless communication capabilities. These devices collect data, track activities, and provide customized experiences to user’s needs and desires. The adoption of wearables in the workplace will occur both in corporate enterprise environments and in industrial settings such as warehouses, manufacturing shop floors, and field maintenance sites.

The growing popularity of mobile networks has been one of the most important factors in the development of wearable technology. Bluetooth headsets, smartwatches, and web-enabled glasses allow people to access data hands-free from Wi-Fi networks.

An entire industry devoted to the development of applications that can work with wearable technologies has recently developed, with services being sold or given for free to individuals willing to download applications. These applications cover a broad spectrum: from those focused on health and exercise to sports and maps.

How ScopeAR's Technology Helped Increase Efficiency by 30%
Scope AR collaborated with one of their large industrial clients to perform a side-byside comparison of Scope AR’s WorkLink software, an Augmented Reality software, versus using traditional paperbased methods to create manufacturing instructions. The client chose a complex assembly process for a proprietary spring-loaded hatch.The assembly process contained over thirty steps that involved things such as fitting components at specific angles to ensure proper assembly, screwing down different screw types in correct locations, and grabbing parts that had similar exteriors.The client chose this assembly process because it contained common steps that are frequently used in other processes as well as unique steps that are confusing and if done wrong would cause severe quality issues.

Global industrial wearable devices market is expected to grow at a CAGR close to 11% during 2018-2022.
