"The prominent feature of Edge Realities is that any computing is fully outsourced, and it's powering the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses to provide our customer with real-time guidance and system diagnostic information when and where they need it,” 1000 Realities co-founder Justyna Janicka said in a statement.
“We look forward to supporting the PGE Group as they continue to expand their smart glasses program."
By wearing M400 Smart Glasses equipped with Edge Realities software, operators are able to perform “faster and more precise inspections,” said the company. In addition, they are reporting on the status of machinery in real-time simply by tapping the touchpad on the Vuzix Smart Glasses.
