better workplace: how wearable tech can transform workplace.
Picture it: Ripley, along with Corporal Hicks, Newt and “artificial person” Bishop have just escaped back to their ship as planet LV-426 blows up. We’re just breathing a sigh of relief when who *else should emerge from the drop ship’s cargo hold but … the alien queen. Ripley takes off at a run, then, a door opens to reveal Ripley in the metal exoskeleton we’ve seen earlier in the movie. And now, she’s prepared to take on the alien queen.
52Back in 1986, the things that were shown in James Cameron’s movie “Aliens” seemed fantastical, today they are commonplace. Wearables, similar to the exoskeleton worn by crewmember Ripley are showing up on assembly lines. Wearable technologies, such as smartwatches, smartglasses, hearabales, and exoskeletons augment workers’ physical and perceptual capabilities. They amplify workers’ physical strength, display detailed information as needed, and alert for hazards.
In its Valencia, Spain factory and in two of its U.S. factories, the Ford Motor Company has provided some of its workers with the “EksoVest”, an upper body industrial exoskeleton. The units augment the user’s physical endurance rather than their strength, since heavier or bulkier items at the plants are handled by robots or machinery.
In a Ford press release, a 35-year-old employee at the Valencia plant said, “My job can be like a workout at the gym and you really need to be fit to tackle some of the tasks. The exoskeleton suit makes a big difference and at the end of a shift I feel much fresher.” In
Heads-up displays (HUDs) are transparent displays of data that don’t require the user to look away from their usual viewpoint. HUDs originated in British military aircraft during WWII.
In the 1960s, French test-pilot Gilbert Klopfstein created the first modern HUD, and a standardized system of HUD symbols so that pilots would only have to learn one system and could transition between aircraft. Klopfstein pioneered HUD technology in military fighter jets and helicopters, with the aim of centralizing critical flight data within the pilot’s field of vision. By overlaying contextually relevant information, such as instructions and explanations, in a worker’s field of view, that worker can work faster and with higher quality.
At Lufthansa Airlines, voice-based headphones enable a single technician to accomplish maintenance work that previously required two workers. Before, one technician would read out instructions while the other executed them. With the hearable, the maintenance checklist is converted into voice commands, and the single technician speaks the status of each task as it is being completed. That speech is automatically converted into data and stored.
Today, we can look up vital information with minimal effort through the use of voice-activated data and information retrieval systems such as Apple’s Siri, Google’s Assistant, and Amazon’s Alexa. And sometimes, we aren’t needed at all.
