Never get lost in your work environment again, and forget depending on a GPS or Wi-Fi. “The human-machine interface company” Daqri launched the Smart Helmet to enhance sensing capabilities outside the user’s traditional senses. The helmet fuses the company’s Intellitrack technology and native augmented reality software.

The Intellitrack, according to Daqri, solves the issue of localization by identifying where the user is in space with the use of a single camera and IMU without the dependency on GPS, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. More than a simple guide, the device allows the user to know what part of the machine needs changing before personally investigating. The helmet not only replaces the typical hard hat, but offers a large host of other benefits:
Intel RealSense camera technology
DAQRI INTELLITRACK™ computer vision and navigation technology
Industrial grade 360 degree sensor array with high-definition video
Thermal vision sensors for predictive maintenance and enhanced worker safety
Integration with DAQRI 4D Studio augmented work instruction platform
