RealWear in Action: Digital Workflow


RealWear Digital Workflow


To help introduce partners to our latest portfolio addition, we will be running a series of “RealWear in Action” articles over the next month. This week we look at digital workflow. Providing visual instructions, checklists, data entry and visual documentation of completed steps while on the go, the RealWear HMT platform can help to maximise productivity and reduce operational errors.



What is Digital Workflow on the RealWear HMT?

Digital workflow delivers step by step instructions to first line and remote workers, guiding them through the task at hand. It also enables workers to access related documentation for further guidance and to make data entries about the work completed. When used with the RealWear HMT platform this digital workflow becomes hands-free, allowing workers to stay focused and improving safety and productivity:

  • Work Instructions: follow easy instructions to keep track of tasks at a simple glance, avoiding mis-steps and thereby reducing errors and increasing quality.
  • Training and documentation: easily access photos, videos and wider documentation for reference during workflow steps, helping to ensure best practice is followed by both experienced and new workers.
  • Compliance: use voice-controlled data entry, alongside the built-in camera to capture photo records, to easily log steps as they are completed.


And all of this can be achieved on the RealWear HMT platform without needing to down tools or remove PPE.


Using the RealWear HMT for Digital Workflow

The RealWear HMT-1 is the world’s first hands-free Android™ tablet class wearable computer for industrial workers. Fully ruggedised if can be used in wet, dusty, hot, dangerous and loud environments with ease. It’s high res micro-display sits just below the line of sight and views like a 7″ tablet allowing workers to consult it when needed at a simple downwards glance, without interfering in their field of vision when they don’t need it. The RealWear HMT-1Z1 delivers the same but is intrinsically safe for use in hazardous environments.

Both are fully PPE compatible with various mounting options to suit; from hard hat clips to silicone bands for clean rooms, there’s an option for every environment. Key HMT features for digital workflow include:
