Bringing an end to hard-to-reach areas
Most industries and careers are affected by COVID-19. Site auditors and inspectors are among them as personnel can’t simply arrive and inspect sites in-person anymore.
With social distancing protocols top-of-mind, auditors have begun to use drones to perform quick, efficient inspections from a safe distance.
Of greater significance, they controlled the drone using a pair of Vuzix M4000 Smart Glasses.
The inspection went off without a hitch:
- The drone’s field-of-view was broadcast onto the Smart Glasses’ display
- The wearable display tech offered seamless control, with no need to constantly look up from a tablet
- Hard-to-reach areas were easily accessed, as Smart Glasses and remote control combined to create a video game-like experience
- Even the most narrow areas were quickly and efficiently navigated
