RealWear Introduces new Industrial-Strength Assisted Reality Wearable - the RealWear Navigator™ 500

Last week VisionID’s partner RealWear released a new Industrial-Strength Assisted Reality Wearable device for frontline workers.

RealWear is a leading provider of assisted reality (AR) solutions for frontline industrial workers, and with the launch of their new product the RealWear Navigator 500, they are bringing a new generation of industrial strength assisted reality wearables.

“With pandemic concerns continuing to press upon the global economy, how technology is enabling a ‘new way to work’ is very much in focus, particularly for industrial frontline workers,” said Andrew Chrostowski, Chairman and CEO of RealWear. 

He went on to advise that RealWear are “unveiling something far bigger than a product. The RealWear Navigator 500 delivers the next generation of work with a ‘reality-first, digital-second’ enterprise solution for remote collaboration, operational efficiency, and hybrid work in safety-critical industries. Assisted reality – more so than augmented or virtual reality – is designed specifically for the frontline worker who requires both hands for the job, striking the perfect balance of keeping workers 100% present and self-aware with the ability to safely navigate industrial surroundings. Afterall, nobody wants to be near hazardous equipment with their head stuck into the metaverse.”  

RealWear Navigator 500 is a new family of assisted reality products from RealWear and includes:

  • A new modular platform
  • Improved user experience
  • Comfortable ergonomics

These features empower frontline workers to perform work tasks while keeping their hands and fields of view free to perform tasks safer for longer amounts of time in the “new way of work” hybrid work environment.

Building on the HMT-1, the new product allows for increased types of barcodes that can be read from 5 to 12, barcodes can be read from further away and in darker lighting and the Telephoto enhanced zoom is also built into the interface.

RealWear has raised the bar for how AR and other XR technologies are deployed at the world’s leading industrial companies.

Industries the RealWear Navigator 500 can deliver real-time access to online information and expertise to include:

  • Automotive
  • Logistics
  • Manufacturing
  • Food & beverage
  • Energy
