Augmented reality is an immersive technology, which offers the possibility to interact in different ways with the external environment. It could also be called ‘enriched‘ because it adds a series of information that overlaps with what the eyes normally perceive, and it is an experience that has been gaining momentum in recent years.
The fundamental principle on which it is based is that of overlay (overlapping) by bringing into play a higher level of communication, which overlaps, in fact, with the real one, increasing its details and information.
The applications are innumerable.
The first examples of augmented reality were introduced in the air force sector in the form of a head-up display (HUD) – superimposed viewer – on fighter planes to allow pilots to view information without taking their eyes off the guide. Subsequently, this technology began to be used in the world of entertainment, to then further expand the sectors of use. From car manufacturers to tourist accommodation facilities, from the medical health sector to retail, the scenarios are truly countless today.
The tools that augmented reality uses are smart glasses, but also smartphones, tablets and wearable devices in general.
Epson ranks in this market, a company among the top 100 most innovative globally for five consecutive years in the ranking compiled by Thomson Reuters4.
The product proposed by Epson is the MOVERIO series, the brightest binocular smart glass with stereoscopic vision, transparent lenses and Si-OLED1 matrix, designed for commercial use and in cultural and entertainment spaces.
The innovative technology at the base of Moverio allows the perfect overlapping of augmented reality contents to images of the real world to make cultural visits, events, shows, company tours or sporting competitions even more accessible and engaging, without distractions for visitors and participants.
In addition to technological innovation, the Moverio are characterized by extreme functionality: the temples adjust dynamically to the size of the users’ heads and the nose pads guarantee a perfect fit, without problems even for the wearers of glasses.
Thanks to the practical neck strap, users can easily wear and remove smart glasses with the certainty of always having their hands free. The buttons on the controller can be customized or disabled in order to greatly simplify the interaction, while the advanced features allow you to enable automatic display of augmented reality content, denying any input.
Optimized for use indoors and outdoors thanks to the lifting blackout screen, Epson smart glasses are covered by a two-year warranty with the possibility of further extension.
The Chimpa team worked with Epson to equip Moverio smart glasses with Chimpa MDM, the software that allows you to manage, monitor, distribute apps and protect mobile devices.
With Chimpa MDM it is possible to manage smart glass for shared use
A Mobile Device Management such as Chimpa MDM can also become a valuable ally for the technology used in the context of augmented reality, ensuring control that makes products more efficient and safer.
