ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, announced today that Vuzix' M400 Smart Glasses are now supported by Bitnamic, a German-based software company that develops smart services for remote service, inspection and maintenance of highly complex machines.
Bitnamic develops mobile Smart Services for the Industry 4.0, to improve and accelerate classic service processes. Bitnamic is a customizable software solution provider for remote service, inspection and maintenance of highly complex machines. If the technician wears Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses during the live broadcast, there is no need to look at a smartphone or tablet. The technician can work hands-free on a machine or system and have helpful information projected directly into his field of vision. The expert, in turn, has direct insight into the system and can provide specific targeted instructions.
"There are often few experts with complex machines and systems, but specialist knowledge is required worldwide for service and maintenance. With Vuzix' M400 Smart Glasses and Bitnamic software, we can help enterprise customers eliminate expert travel costs and machine downtimes," said Rolf Behrens, CEO and Co-Founder of Bitnamic.
"We are pleased to partner with Bitnamic to bring this hands-free remote expert experience to companies facing immediate operational challenges. The combination of Bitnamic software and Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses represents a robust solution that has been optimized for highly complex enterprise machines and processes," said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix.
A sample of Bitnamic enterprise customers include Amazone (agricultural machinery), Schüco and Bizerba.
