Vuzix Partners with Sensory to Deliver Voice Recognition on Smart Glasses to Enhance Efficiencies in the Workplace

Vuzix® Corporation, a leading supplier of Video Eyewear and M300 Smart Glasses products in the consumer, enterprise, and entertainment markets, announced today that it has partnered with Sensory, a Silicon Valley-based company focused on improving the user experience and security of consumer electronics through state-of-the-art embedded voice and vision technologies, to deliver TrulyHandsfree™ voice recognition on the M300 to improve the efficiency of workflows in warehouses, in the field, in telemedicine and for many other use cases.

The partnership enhances voice recognition functionality, navigation and control of the next-generation Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses. The voice trigger, command and control operations with Sensory utilize embedded speaker ID and speaker verification technology based on deep machine learning technology.

The M300 integrated with Sensory technology enables hands-free voice navigation of the user interface and is highly accurate even in high-noise conditions, allowing the user to speak commands such as, “go to menu,” “turn on camera, take picture, turn off camera,” “confirm pick,” and many others. Enterprise users will be able to create company specific libraries of commands to complete core tasks. Within the field of telemedicine, the Sensory TrulyHandsfree™ enabled M300 will allow physicians to dictate and create medical records electronically while conducting examinations. The speech-to-text function will enable insurance companies, for example, to create records in the field while an investigator is reviewing a damaged property or vehicle while taking pictures or a video with the M300.

With Sensory TrulyHandsfree™, the ultra-low-power voice recognition technology is embedded within the device and does not require an Internet connection. This is a critical differentiator for the M300, as it will significantly improve the battery life of the product. Sensory’s TrulyHandsfree™ combined with the M300 Intel® Atom™ processor will significantly improve performance for end users.
