Glartek becomes the 1st Augmented Worker Company to Integrate with Apple Vision Pro

Glartek has become the first provider of Connected and Augmented technology to announce the compatibility of its digital solution with Apple Vision Pro.

Lisbon, Portugal – March 8, 2024 – Glartek, a leading provider of innovative Augmented Reality and Connected Worker solutions for the manufacturing and asset-intensive industries, has today announced the compatibility of its cutting-edge software with Apple Vision Pro, Apple’s recently released groundbreaking spatial computing device.

With the integration of the Augmented & Connected Worker solution and Apple Vision Pro, frontline workers can now experience Glartek’s solution in yet another innovative device that transforms human-machine interaction. This device features a new eye-tracking technology to improve users’ hands-free experience and a micro‑OLED display system to ensure a state-of-the-art resolution.

Apple’s spatial computing device combined with Glartek’s platform can be leveraged for a wide variety of use cases, including task execution on shop floors but also training and remote assistance. Organizations can run Glartek’s solution on Apple’s device to access AR work instructions, AR guidance that maps digital elements according to physical locations, contextualized access to documents, and checklists, among others. Glartek’s solution is already being leveraged in a wide range of industries such as manufacturing, automotive, utilities, and paper & pulp, among others.

By combining our connected worker software and Apple’s new spatial computing hardware, are further expanding the visualization of complex industrial processes, data analytics, and 3D models. This enables workers to access contextualized information – in both real and training scenarios – mapped according to real locations, ensuring that operators know exactly where to perform each task. All this while keeping their hands free to maneuver machines and other equipment.

As a result, this solution can be used to train workers by simulating real environments using 3D models and allowing workers to get a better understanding of the conditions they will meet once on the frontline. Moreover, the seamless integration of digital elements into the real world ensures operators can always be aware of their surroundings while accessing an extra layer of information.

By making sure that Glartek’s digital solution is compatible with Apple Vision Pro, we are providing businesses with more options to conduct their operations. Moreover, Glartek is actively contributing to adding value to workers’ skills, while ensuring they remain safe and are productive throughout their tasks.

“We are very excited about the Apple Vision Pro and what its release represents for the wider spatial computing and mixed reality technologies. This new device is a clear indicator of the future of the technologies and demonstrates the vitality of its ongoing expansion. At Glartek, we instantly felt the need to make our solution compatible with this latest device to demonstrate our commitment to providing clients with our solution across multiple devices and to showcase our constant need to innovate and use the latest tools to expand our potential.”
