Epson has announced the addition of a new pair of augmented reality smart glasses to its range, that build on the technology included in Epson’s existing Epson BT-200 smart glasses.
The new edition to the range comes in the form of the Epson Moverio Pro BT-2000, that are equipped with a more rugged design specifically for industrial applications as well as being fitted with higher specification hardware.
The Epson Moverio Pro BT-2000 will be available in selected markets in EMEA, Japan and the US during the autumn months of 2015, although no details on pricing has been announced as yet.
Featuring a high-resolution five megapixel stereo camera with three-dimensional depth sensing that detects the dimensions and spatial positioning of objects in relation to each other, the Moverio Pro BT-2000 provides a platform for displaying augmented reality content over the real world and 3D images.
Also including an original and highly sensitive Epson inertial measurement unit (IMU, a type of motion sensor) for accurate head tracking or indoor positioning, and a 1350cd/m2 high-resolution display, the product brings a new dimension to commercial environments by allowing workers in various locations to see exactly what their counterparts are seeing, get visual assistance and to provide informed support and training.
The new product also provides Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for connectivity with external interface devices such as keyboards, mouses and headsets, voice interpretation and recognition for easier hand-free operation, and two exchangeable batteries that allow work to continue with minimal interruption and downtime.
