Augmented reality piloted on H-E-B plant floor

The ability to leverage augmented reality on the plant floor will open the door to a game changing approach to technical education and knowledge transfer.

Vuzix® Corporation, supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) products, has successfully piloted Vuzix Basics Video (VBV) within H-E-B’s manufacturing operations. “Daniel Estrada, associate team leader at H-E-B, pulled the Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses out of the box and had them in productive use in a matter of minutes," says Greg Flickinger, Group VP of Manufacturing Operations at H-E-B. "Set-up was seamless and easy," he adds. Flickinger was also impressed with the audio quality and noise cancelation delivered by the integrated Vuzix Basics Video solution on the M300, especially in noisy environments.

"We’re even more excited at the new and innovative use cases the team is developing to provide operators with the right data at the right time, while allowing them to work hands free," states Flickinger. "The ability to leverage augmented reality on the plant floor will open the door to a game changing approach to technical education and knowledge transfer. We’ve really just started to scratch the surface of all the ways we can drive value with the Vuzix M300 in our operations.”
