RealWear devices are compatible with worker personal protective equipment (PPE) and feature the only “full” hot-swap battery in its class.
BIM 360 platform for construction project management helps project teams stay on time and on budget by giving them access to the latest version of all project information in one app, anytime, anytime place. Now, by connecting a RealWear assisted reality device to BIM 360, teams can more easily access the information they need, saving them time, reducing risk, and reducing rework and errors.
With the common solution, construction teams can now have hands-free access to project documents, plans and models; they can run quality construction, safety and project control workflows from their RealWear device by running the new BIM 360 application for RealWear. Workers can open and control BIM 360 on the RealWear hands-free device using simple voice commands while maintaining full situational awareness and keeping their hands unoccupied for work. Traditional document- or tablet-based workflow management solutions require workers to hold a clipboard or, sometimes, remove their PPE gloves to use a tablet’s touchscreen. Construction crews can hook a RealWear device to their hard hats and display a micro-screen that displays like a 7-inch tablet without obstructing their view. They can use voice commands to take HD photos using the innovative front camera of the RealWear device.
