H-E-B has successfully piloted “smart glasses” from Vuzix Corp. at its manufacturing operations, enabling associates to use augmented reality to perform their jobs more efficiently.
“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,” noted Greg Flickinger, the grocer’s group VP of manufacturing operations. “Setup was seamless and easy. We were highly impressed with the audio quality and noise cancelation delivered by the integrated Vuzix Basics Video solution on the M300, especially in noisy environments. While the solution exceeded our expectations, 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. 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.”
