RealWear Choses Microsoft Teams for New Hardhats

RealWear has announced a series of hardhat headsets with Microsoft Teams functionality that allow industrial workers to use both hands for complex work procedures while remotely collaborating with subject matter experts from around the world.

RealWear, Inc, a global leader of hands-free head-mounted tablets for digital transformation in industry, today announced that it is integrating Microsoft Teams for RealWear’s voice-controlled Android HMT-1 headsets. This allows industrial workers touse both hands for complex work procedures while remotely collaborating with subject matter experts wherever they are in the world.

Voice-optimizing Microsoft Teams for our reality-first, digital second headset will deliver measurable ROI in-situ for industry, empowering all first line workers,

said Sanjay Jhawar, president of RealWear.

This integration addresses a common request from our customers to deliver Teams on HMT-1 headsets, enabling them to operate the Teams app and start a remote meeting with just their voice.

Firstline workers often are required to work in dangerous environments where the use of both hands is critical for safety and effectiveness. These workers increasingly require access to a screen to gather information or to collaborate. With RealWear’s noise cancellation technology for voice commands combined with an adjustable micro-display screen running Android, RealWear’s HMT-1 is purpose-built for safe collaboration and knowledge transfer at the edge.

Integrating Microsoft Teams with RealWear’s hands-free connected worker platform brings added safety to workers,

said Emma Williams, Corporate Vice President, Modern Workplace Transformations.

Microsoft Teams on RealWear has the potential to reduce downtime, as well as dependence on handheld devices in dangerous work environments.
