Smart Glasses - How to Have a Successful Pilot and Scale Productivity Gains

Smart Glasses Business Impact (1)

The secrets of a Successful Smart Glasses Pilot?

The first challenge is to get right:

- Both retaining the Voice Control, Hands Free practicality of the smartglasses wearer, so you get the productivity gains.

- Connecting to remote experts, inspectors, trainers, teachers on the preferred collaboration tool as a participant NOT as a media stream.

Why not as a media stream? 

The media stream connection comes with several complications, be it Teams, Google Meet or any Collaboration tool.

1. If you use the media stream this prevents the users of the collaboration tool sharing any content, why, because the smart glasses wearer is using the content sharing media stream, because of how you have connected! 

That's a significant drawback for many use cases , remote training and remote teaching being just two.

2. The Media stream requires significant bandwidth, which disables a further set of use cases, where the smart glasses wearer is in the field and bandwidth is poor - Construction, Gas pipelines being just two examples.

3. The AR glasses are limited by their design as to how much battery power they have, and using a media stream to connect shortens battery life.

The right way:

Join the Collaboration Tool as a participant, there are very few tools that enable this joining method, here is a link to the most popular one >> Simply Videos Smart Glasses Connect & Control

When you join as a participant using this popular subscription software here's the benefits list:

a) You do not disable the file sharing in Teams / Google Meet etc...

c) Smart Glasses Connect and Control has been engineered to connect in low bandwidth situations, so you gain this flexibility should bandwidth be an issue. 

d) You retain voice command audio control of your smart glasses so you can zoom in / out with a clear view, switch on the torchlight APP and stay hands free.
