Vuzix and Ubimax Deliver a Hands-Free Smart Glasses Picking Solution

Vuzix, a supplier of smart glasses, AR and VR technologies has announced that the company has teamed up with Ubimax to deliver a hands-free smart glasses vision picking solution to John Deere, a US construction and machinery manufacturing company. The solution is to be used in John Deere’s machinery plant assembly line located in Mannheim Germany, and will be based on the Vuzix M300 and is intended to reduce errors, improve picking speed and eliminate the need of a hand scanner.

John Deere had problems on their mixed-model tractor assembly line, and needed a mistake-proof kitting process that would also improve worker productivity and flexibility. The project moved from concept to implementation in three months, using the Vuzix M300 smart glasses running the Ubimax xPick solution and this allowed the workers to be hands-free handling heavy tractor components. Within just two weeks of deployment, John Deere workers reduced the error rate to near zero, the companies said, while concurrently achieving the target productivity improvements.

John Deere joins BMW, DHL, Daimler, and many others as another adopter of hands-free smart glasses solutions from Vuzix and Ubimax.
