Vuzix Delivers Smart Glasses to Australian Meat Industry to Assist with Plant Audits During COVID-19 Pandemic
ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, announced that the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses are being used by Bondi Labs with the support of Australian Meat Processor Corporation (AMPC), the leading research and development corporation for the red meat processing sector in Australia, to assist with audits and compliance inspections of meat processing facilities.
The Australian Meat Processor Corporation (AMPC) provides research, development, extension and marketing services to advance the productivity, profitability and sustainability of the sector by supporting over 100 members operating more than 130 plants across Australia, representing over 90% of Australia's red meat processing sector. Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses are being used in an effort to drive down the $100 million annual cost of audits and compliance inspections that are carried out by third party auditors and the Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment.
Due to the urgency to keep people out of plants to prevent the spread of the virus, Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses are being used to conduct video calls while the wearer has full use of their hands and can transmit live video footage and audio to anyone anywhere in the world. The cost of the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses and software are recovered in just two audits, and with some larger plant operations requiring up to 80 audits a year Vuzix technology is capable of delivering strong ROIs to the Australian meat processing industry.
"Vuzix Smart Glasses are being used all over the world, whether on the frontline by doctors or in the meat processing industry to support business continuity during the COVID-19 pandemic," said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. "The work being performed by the Australian meat industry to support their operations is another great example of why sending a pair of Vuzix Smart Glasses instead of a person is not only a safe choice but less expensive."
