SAP apps for smart glasses


Imagine a hands free world where you could control and optimise your workplace with the blink of an eye. Well that’s exactly what Vuzix are aiming to do with their Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses, and they are teaming up with SAP SE who will be designing the mobile applications to compliment the invention.

The two specific applications SAP have developed for the glasses are:

  • SAP AR Warehouse: As the name suggests, it focuses on aiding the work of Vuzix’s warehouse workers. The app provides workers with the ability to scan and process bar codes for units which will make determining locations of products a lot easier. SAP have also incorporated voice input into the app which will allow users to register quantity of products.
  • SAP AR Service Technician: This app will provide users with a 3D visual system allowing them a full view of their workplace, an expert calling feature to enable a remote colleague to provide users with directions.

This advancement into wearable technology is sure to be polarising, as similarly to the Google Glass, questions regarding privacy and security have been raised. However, there is no doubt that the eyewear combined with the applications by SAP will increase productivity within Vuzix’s warehouses which will in turn result in higher profitability.
