Australian Newspaper The Age Features RealWear
RealWear was highlighted in the Melbourne-based newspaper The Age ahead of the International Mining and Resources Conference in Melbourne October 28 - 31 (IMARC).

Australian skills shortages may be at critical levels in some sectors, with recent research by the Australian Industry Group (Ai Group) finding an estimated 75 per cent of employers were having difficulty recruiting qualified or skilled workers to fill vacancies.

‘‘AR-empowered humans are the missing puzzle piece. You’ve probably seen headlines that claim that AI, robotics and other technology is taking over warehouse, factory and industrial jobs.
‘‘The reality is that most physical tasks completed by engineers, service technicians, facility managers and environmental health and safety officers take a high degree of skill that technology can’t currently replicate.
‘‘This means workers themselves are the most critical source of productivity gains available to companies that are digitising their operations. They are literally the best IIoT [Industrial Internet of Things] sensors.’’ David Francis, RealWear Account Executive for Australia

RealWear: Creating Human + Machine Synergy
RealWear CEO Andy Lowery recently gave an interview with Robotics Business Review, discussing how industrial enterprise companies use the headset for different tasks - including the maintenance of machinery and robots - and his vision of establishing a conduit between human workers and machines.

In addition, Andrew Blanchard, VP Corporate Relations at Teradyne, explained his company’s motivation for investing in RealWear’s Series B round:

“The ability that suddenly a guy working on a jet engine could have a remote mentor looking at the same thing and telling him what he needs to solve a problem, or if there’s someone in the middle of an activity and they need a manual, but the manual is back in the office and he could read the manual in real-time while he’s got his head stuck in an engine – those kind of applied technologies to the manufacturing space were what we found very intriguing.” Andrew Blanchard, Vice President of Corporate Relations at Teradyne
