BLG LOGISTICS is field testing both augmented and virtual reality.
Smart glasses that display useful information not only guide employees through repackaging tasks, but also raise awareness of common errors. Wearing the glasses keeps both hands free and enables the workers to issue instructions by voice. Implementing the solution entailed designing workflows around repackaging instructions and visualizing these on the data glasses.
Virtual reality glasses are being worn in the BLG training center to familiarize new recruits with the real packaging process in a virtual environment. The task of the operations instructors has changed accordingly – they can now focus much more intently on the recruits’ individual strengths and weaknesses.
