Challenge

As a large, well respected consulting firm overlooking and managing various remote mine sites, Krypton Mining Principal Consultant Lou Moller was in search of a solution that would allow them seamless visual access to the remote project sites. He needed to be able to walk the site doing visual and audit inspections and report back to Corporate Stakeholders in detail.

“Sight Off-Site”

Solution:

The RealWear HMT-1 provides the foundation for a Connected Worker program. Use it in wet, dusty, hot, dangerous, and loud industrial environments. A fully rugged head-mounted device, it optionally snaps into safety helmets and can be worn with safety glasses or corrective eyewear.

Dwyka’s Realwear Mining Package includes (but not limited to):

  • Realwear HMT-1 unit
    Hands Free Voice Based operating system, local speech recognition in loud areas, powerful audio speaker, IP66 rating, adjustable screen viewable in bright environment, 2-meter drop shockproof, full shift hot-swappable battery.
  • Rigid Carry case
  • MSA Hardhat clips

*Stable Wifi (3G) connectivity required

With the RealWear Mining Package, we offered Krypyton Mining a real-time POV visual solution that allows the remote worker to walk and interact through the site “avatar”, giving stakeholders the ability to not only get “SightOffSite” but the ability to interact in real-time with the environment through the avatar’s hands.
