Imagine being on site and having real-time visual and audio contact with experts who can see what you see, diagnose issues and provide visual and audio feedback.
It’s not a dream for the future. It’s the reality at Sedgman.
The intelligent wearable technology is currently being tested at Sedgman, and is used to transmit visuals from site to office-based experts who can diagnose maintenance issues and provide immediate support.
The technology consists of a camera, noise-cancelling microphone and earplugs. It enables the wearer to share real-time footage, still images and audio between two locations via 3G/4G mobile or site Wi-Fi networks.
Video footage from site can be annotated in real-time and viewed in the headset screen of the user. In the example shown here, the footage taken on site was viewed in the Brisbane office where a broken thickener float chain was identified. A snapshot of the annotated video was captured and the image immediately viewable on site for remediation.
