First customer implementation of bluebee® for smart glasses at major Asian airport
The development of bluebee® for smart glasses, a standard plug-in for the bluebee® mobile O&M app, has entered a new phase with the launch of the first customer implementation project.
Siveco was selected by a major Asian airport to conduct the implementation of an inspection solution using bluebee® for smart glasses, with the objectives of providing a hands-free, convenient and safe wearable device for O&M technicians, while standardizing the technical inspection process. The smart glasses hardware is provided by Siveco's AR partner LLVISION.
The bluebee® for smart glasses solution was first released in March 2019 (http://www.sivecochina.com/en/news/siveco-china-llvision-jointly-released-bluebeer-smart-glasses) by Siveco China and LLVISION.
Siveco Group has a long experience delivering maintenance management solutions to airports all over the world in Algeria, France, Greece, Italy, Jordan, Morocco, as well as all African airports facilities under the jurisdiction of the ASECNA (Agency for Air Navigation Safety in Africa and Madagascar, 17 countries).
About bluebee® for smart glasses
bluebee® for smart glasses is an integrated AR solution jointly developed based on LLVISION's innovative AR glasses and Siveco's widely used standard bluebee® app 'for the worker of tomorrow'. When the phone detects the presence of the GLXSS AR glasses, bluebee® will automatically enable the AR display to support the inspection process, equipment condition checks and troubleshooting. During operations, the AR glasses help ensure compliance with standard operating procedures, while the user's hands remain free. When the AR glasses are in use, the technician can perform his manual work, as the smart phone is left in the pocket.
