Trimble XR10 Includes HoloLens Tech Certified for the Jobsite
Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 is an incredible piece of technology that can elevate your team’s productivity and efficiency by combining the virtual world with the real world to give employees more information to work with.
Augmented reality applications can save companies time and money. Repair and assembly technicians can use HoloLens 2 to see visual aids that help them do their jobs faster and fewer mistakes. Construction workers can use HoloLens to look at full-scale 3D representations of the blueprints for a project, where they can catch design errors before it becomes a costly construction mistake.
The industries that could benefit the most from augmented reality headsets are also the ones that have extreme safety restrictions. As useful as the technology is for construction workers, you can’t use a HoloLens headset on the construction site. They aren’t certified to do that.
Fortunately, Microsoft thought of that ahead of time and opened up channels for third-parties to create industry-specific iterations of the HoloLens 2. Trimble is the first partner to take up Microsoft’s offer, and the company built a HoloLens 2-equipped hard hat that is certified for use anywhere you need to wear head protection.
The Trimble XR10 with HoloLens is certified for use in safety-controlled environments, just like any industry-standard hardhat. The HoloLens 2 portion of the XR10 sits atop the brim of a standard hard had. The battery rests on the back of the helmet, while the visor attaches to the front brim.
The HoloLens 2 visor is mounted to a hinge, which allows you to flip the screen up and away from your face for easy swapping between the real and augmented view without ever taking your head protection off.
The Trimble XR10 features a standard HoloLens 2 compute unit, and it supports all the same features as Microsoft’s standard HoloLens 2 model, including voice commands and finger tracking input. Aside from being attached to a helmet, the primary difference between the two HoloLens 2 options is the audio system.
Trimble equipped the XR10 headset with a 5-microphone array, which helps with noise cancellation in noisy environments like a construction site. The XR10 also features bone-conductive audio, which allows you to hear the headset’s audio clearly, even when you’re wearing industrial-grade ear protection.
The Trimble XR10 is the best augmented reality solution for construction workers and anyone working in hazardous environments.
