The newest innovations available
As a company that is full of ideas, we are always on the lookout for the most cutting-edge innovations. For months, we have been tinkering with video glasses, also known as smart glasses.
After extensive testing, we found that not all smart glasses live up to our standards. Our ideal pair of smart glasses would have a high-speed processor, internet access and enough internal memory to transform the device into the most efficient mobile computer glasses possible. Plus, they would feature a full HD camera and numerous microphones, as well as various gyroscopes and stabilization sensors.
The ODG R-7 proved to be the best video glasses for us. This device fulfills all the requirements of the augmented reality market.
Our smart glasses can be used as a standalone unit, but they only meet their full potential with RIED’s specially-developed software applications. Due to the variety of functions available, they can be used in the following areas:
- Customer service
Video image feed
As experts in automotive camera systems, we use video glasses to increase views cable-free. Video images are fed into smart glasses via Wi-Fi or UMTS. Because you can adjust the degree of the superimposed images on the built-in display, you can easily recognize the camera images but will always have an eye on your surroundings.
In special forces command vehicles we use video glasses for night vision. Here we transfer images from our thermal imaging cameras to the video glasses via an app. Thus, when the vehicle’s lights are turned off, the driver can use the camera to drive along dark streets without getting into an accident. The driver can also recognize people and animals both near and far due to the thermal view.
Video glasses for police surveillance operations
The night vision scenario described above can also assist in police surveillance operations. The images from a zoom camera mounted on tall buildings offer a broad view of a person’s surroundings. Images from body cameras can also be transferred. Thus, remote colleagues can always stay informed about the current situation both visually and acoustically.
Making industrial processes easier
Software applications for smart glasses make it easier to visualize and explain industrial processes. The user wears the video glasses and receives data sheets, production instructions or even explanatory videos from a central station. These important documents allow them to easily perform difficult processes. Repairs can be better monitored and coordinated, and new staff can be trained much faster.
