SINGAPORE (Jan 7): ST Engineering and Vuzix Corporation, the developer of smart glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) products, have launched the world’s first Augmented Intelligence, biometric-enabled smart glasses platform.

Developed by ST Engineering’s electronics division, the platform as a service (PaaS) is a new pay-per-use application integrated with Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses, enabling hands-free identification.

The PaaS Smart Glass solution will be available for preview at CES 2019 from tomorrow to Friday in Las Vegas, Nevada.

With this PaaS model, enterprise customers in the healthcare, aviation, logistics and manufacturing industries can help save costs without the need of additional equipment.

The solution allows customisation of a number of applications. These include hands-free scanning of barcodes for efficient cargo loading and delivery; real-time cross-referencing against a central database of criminal offenders and displaying route maps to criminal suspects in the vicinity.

In times of medical emergencies, it enables first responders to more efficiently identify causalities or patients and obtain vital information such as medical histories of allergies and blood type.

Low Jin Phang, General Manager of Info-Software Systems, Electronics, ST Engineering, says, “With the Vuzix Biometric Smart Glasses, enterprises and security agencies will be able to mobilise frontline and field workers with up to 50% enhanced productivity as a result of streamlined work processes.”

Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix, says, “Vuzix is committed to delivering innovative AR smart glass solutions that are lightweight, wearable all day and deliver information to users across the enterprise when and where they need it.”

As at 3.03pm, shares in ST Engineering are up 2 cents to $3.49.
